Wishing a love-filled Valentine’s to all our amazing patients & employees!
After enjoying that heart-shaped box of sweets from your sweetie, take into considering some heart-healthy tips to keep your “ticker” happy & healthy.
• “Beauty sleep” does more than just keeping you looking fresh!
Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
• Keep the pressure off!
Get your blood pressure checked often, especially if it’s known to be on the higher side.
* 203 Urgent Care offers free blood pressure checks every day!
• Slash saturated fats (of course after that box of chocolates.)
Opt for leaner cuts and reduced-fat options.
• Get out there and move it, move it!
Aim for at least 30 min a day, 5 days a week of cardio-centered activity.
