We recently participated in the Cape Fear Heart Walk, and wanted to share these quick tips on building a healthier heart, from hostetlerarchitecture.com:
* TAKE A TEN MINUTE WALK
“Start small, or add 10 minutes to your daily routine.
* GIVE YOURSELF A LIFT
Start with light weights for your arms and work towards heavier lifts.
* EAT MORE PRODUCE
Add just one extra fruit or vegetable a day.
* MAKE BREAKFAST COUNT
Start your day with quality nutrients.
* STOP DRINKING YOUR CALORIES
* HAVE A HANDFUL OF NUTS
Healthy fats are filling and nutritious!
* SAMPLE THE FRUITS OF THE SEA
Eat seafood at least once a week.
* BREATHE DEEPLY
Lower your blood pressure with a few deep breaths daily.
* WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN
* COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
Choose a gratitude attitude.
You only have one heart…Build it strong!”
