Heart Health with Nurse Lauren
Hi there, Nurse Lauren here. It’s February and I’m ready to give you some tips for your heart! Your heart is one of your most important muscles and it is vital to keep it healthy so you keep YOU healthy. Here are three ways to make sure you are taking care of your heart:
Tip #1: Nutrition is key! Eat a healthy diet that includes less processed foods and more fresh fruits and vegetables.
Tip #2: Get off the couch and get moving! Exercise lowers your blood pressure and cholesterol level.
Tip #3: Do not smoke! Quit or don’t start. This habit is the leading cause of preventable deaths.
