According to the cdc.gov,

“The situation is alarming, but there is good news—heart disease is preventable and controllable. We can start by taking small steps every day to bring our loved ones and ourselves closer to heart health. CDC is providing a tip a day throughout February, but you can take these small steps all year long.

Eat a healthy diet.

Maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise regularly.

Monitor your blood pressure.

Don’t smoke.
