February Health Tips

Stay happy and healthy through the winter season with these quick tips.

1-Minute Tip: Stop to smell the flowers. Positive psychological health is associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Take a deep breath and find joy in the little moments.

5-Minute Tip: Take a blood pressure test. A quick trip to your local pharmacy for a blood pressure test can be the first step toward healthier habits and greater heart health.

15-Minute Tip: Watch some funny videos. Working 15 minutes of hearty laughter into your day isn’t just a quick pick-me-up. It’s also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety and improve vascular function and circulation – which can all help reduce the risk of heart attack.

30-Minute Tip: Give your pantry a makeover. Replacing foods that are high in salt and unhealthy fats with heart-healthy alternatives is a quick way to change your lifestyle for the better.
