Heart Healthy Habits

1.Start your day with whole grains and green tea (anti-inflammatory, boosts blood vessel function).

2.Increase your potassium intake (helps regulate blood pressure and prevent hypertension).

3.Cuddle your cat, play with your dog (pet owners are less likely to die of heart attack than those who have never had a pet).

4.Boost your workout routine (as part of a regular workout, include quick bursts of activity).

5.Say goodbye to stressful relationships (people in troubled relationships have higher risk of heart problems).

6.Get more vitamin D (low vitamin D levels have been linked to higher risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks).

7.Protect your gums (chronic gum conditions can lead to cardiovascular disease. Brush and floss your teeth twice a day, and don’t forget to clean your tongue).
