Keep your heart healthy

To help people improve their heart health, the American Heart Association has developed a new online resource, called My Life Check.

My Life Check was designed by the American Heart Association with the goal of improved health by educating the public on how best to live. These measures have one unique thing in common: any person can make these changes, the steps are not expensive to take and even modest improvements to your health will make a big difference. Start with one or two. This simple, seven step list has been developed to deliver on the hope we all have--to live a long, productive healthy life.

The steps include:

Get Active
Eat Better
Lose Weight
Stop Smoking
Control Cholesterol
Manager Blood Pressure
Reduce Blood Sugar

Columbia Physical Therapy in East Greenbush has joined the American Heart Association in encouraging the community to become responsible for reducing the risk of heart disease.
