7 Steps to a Healthier Heart

February 2, 2023

February is all about hearts- not just valentine hearts but our very own heart health. As we begin National Heart Month, it’s both important to know the risk of cardiovascular disease and the ways you can lower that risk.

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the CDC, one person dies every 34 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. That’s a heart-stopping statistic. But, the good news is that we can make lifestyle choices that dramatically reduce our risk.

While there are things you can not change like your family history, ethnicity or age, there’s so much you CAN do to lead a healthier life and keep that heart in good shape. This is your journey and it’s never too late to start new habits that improve your health so why wait?

Let’s step into February with these heart healthy goals!
