Healthy Habits Leads to Healthy Aging


This is the takeaway for American Heart Month, the campaign reminding us to make time to maintain our cardiovascular health at every age!

The American Heart Association points to heart disease as the greatest public health threat and cardiovascular disease as the underlying cause of death in 1 out of 3 people. Now, the potential harmful effects of coronavirus on the heart and vascular system have heightened the importance of healthful habits.

Studies show that heart health can be improved at any age. Committing to a healthy diet and regular exercise can help keep blood pressure and cholesterol numbers within a healthy range. Losing weight if BMI (body mass index) is high and quitting smoking will provide more positive health benefits.
