On this day dedicated to love and all things of the heart, I thought I'd remind you to take care of your actual heart.
Looking at several health sites, I find that the top advice for a healthy heart are the following:
- Eat plenty of fiber and whole grains.
- Avoid cholesterol and unhealthy fats (trans fats & saturated fats)
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Exercise regularly.
- Find effective ways to deal with stress.
- Stop smoking.
Whatever you do, I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.
