7 steps for a healthy heart

How many times in your life have you stopped, looked at your life choices and thought: "I need to do better." Maybe you thought you should change your diet, exercise more, quit smoking, or be more careful about your blood pressure or cholesterol. You had the best intentions, but never quite followed through with your plan. Maybe you weren't even sure how to start with a plan.

Creating a plan and sticking to it is not as difficult as you might think. What if you had a guide....

  • To guarantee you a longer life?
  • To prevent heart disease?
  • To feel stronger and healthier now and later?
  • To ensure a better quality of life as you invest in your relationships and life goals?

On behalf of the American Heart Association, I'd like to invite you to start a new life resolution. No matter what day it is, it's never too late for all of us to make better choices for our health. Even if you start with one small change today and another next week or next month - it all counts.

Maybe you're tired of trying to sort through all the health advice you get. Do it today. Don't eat it tomorrow. The choices are many, and the confusion can make anyone want to give up.

That's why the American Heart Association created Life's Simple Seven.

Thanks to the scientific and research volunteers at the American Heart Association, we've created a simple way for you to know where you stand on the road to good health through the seven steps necessary for healthy living.

  1. Quit smoking.
  2. Maintain a healthy weight
  3. Engaging in physical activity
  4. Eat a healthy diet
  5. Manage your blood pressure
  6. Take care of your cholesterol
  7. Keep your blood sugar or glucose levels at a healthy level

To find out where you stand with Life's Simple Seven, simply take our assessment. In a few minutes, you'll know how you're doing with each one, and you'll get your personal score and life plan.

Remember, you can stop heart disease before it even starts. Start small and keep it simple. Make one change today, and then you're ready to make another. Before you know it, you'll stop making bad choices and start making life choices!
