Health Tip: Get Heart Healthy
(HealthDay News) -- If you want to improve your heart health, it may require a long-term commitment to changing your lifestyle.
The American Heart Association offers these heart-healthy suggestions:
Replace your bad habits with healthier habits.
Creating new habits takes time, possibly as long as 90 days.
Approach these changes as replacing bad habits, rather than as depriving yourself.
Create several small, short-term goals out of one big one.
Be accountable to a friend you trust.
Let yourself indulge every once in a while.
Replace TV with daily exercise.
