Put A Little Love In Your Heart

Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US?

Each year, 25% of all deaths are because of heart disease. While that might be scary, there are plenty of things you can do to make sure your heart is healthy! All your heart needs is a little TLC.

T – Take the time to watch what you’re eating. You should avoid foods that are high in trans fat and saturated fat. Instead, eat foods that are rich in fiber like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

L – Limit your salt intake by using spices to season your food. Seasoning adds a lot of flavor without the harmful effects of high sodium (salt) content.

C – Cardio. The best defense against heart disease is regular physical activity. Thirty (30) minutes of moderately intense physical activity (ex. brisk walking or jogging) at least three (3) days a week is highly recommended. This is a great way to keep your heart, mind, and soul feeling great.

“Put a little love in your heart…And the world will be a better place” – Jackie DeShannon
