Our Here’s to Good Health program presents 5 easy tips to maintain heart health.
Move Your Body
At least 30 minutes of physical activity, 5 or more times a week: 2nd lining, dancing, and running are great cardio!
If you smoke, QUIT!
Avoid breathing second hand smoke. Call Megan at the NOMC ( 504-412-1366) for smoking cessation resources.
Lose Weight: Every 5 Pounds Matters
Losing 5-10% of your current weight, even as little as 10-20 pounds, will make a major improvement in your insulin resistance and health benefits.
