Healthy eating, exercise, quitting smoking and managing stress are the key lifestyle changes to combat heart disease. They can all have a profound impact on combating heart disease. Making all of these a priority may seem overwhelming. But every small positive step you take can help improve your health.
Being active doesn’t have to mean being an Olympian
You can benefit from as little as 60 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week. For major health benefits, every week adults should do at least:
– 150 minutes of aerobic activity
– Two total body strength training workouts
If you smoke, you know you need to stop
Smoking can raise your risk of heart disease and heart attack, and it affects every cell in your body. If you can’t stop on your own, talk with your doctor about programs and products that can help you quit, or seek out support groups.

Managing stress can mean managing risk
Unmanaged stress can affect your health. It may cause high blood pressure, irregular heart rhythms, damage to your arteries, higher cholesterol levels, and the development and progression of coronary artery disease. Physical activity, medicine and relaxation therapy can help relieve stress.
A few small steps can have a great big impact on your health — so start now!
