April 2014: Are you taking time for your health?

1-minute tip: Snack on 6-8 walnuts. They're loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

5-minute tip: Play with your pet. Toss your dog a ball, or just curl up with your cat for a few minutes. The unconditional love of pets is good for your heart.

15-minute tip: Do some strength training at least twice a week. Not only does it help relieve stress, but it will also help decrease your strong body fat.

30-minute tip: Take a walk with a friend. Connecting with friends and maintaining social networks is almost as important as the exercise itself.
