In recognition of Heart Health Month, SJPH is promoting the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Life’s Simple 7 Campaign which highlights 7 tips for a healthier heart. CLICK HERE to see a SIMPLE 7 Flyer.
The AHA considers Life's Simple 7 tips to be small steps to big changes. The tips include: Get Active, Manage Blood Pressure (new AHA guidelines), Control Cholesterol, Eat Better, Reduce Blood Sugar, Lose Weight and Stop Smoking.
When focusing on all 7, these tips may not seem so simple, but we encourage you to start small. By focusing on one or two tips at a time you are more likely to maintain better habits in the long-run. Additionally, when you follow one of the tips, you will likely have a positive impact on several more.
