Health Hint

Taking care of your health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Baylor College of Medicine experts have plenty of tips to help you stay healthy. This month’s Health Hint provides heart health tips.

Healthy habits can lead to a healthy heart. First talk with your doctor about your risk factors for cardiovascular disease. If you plan to make lifestyle changes, remember that small changes can make a big impact. Decide to eat a healthy breakfast tomorrow morning, cut back on your portion size during today’s lunch or even go for a quick stroll around the block after dinner tonight. Small changes are less overwhelming, and every day offers a new opportunity to make good choices.”
