You only have one heart. Protect it with these five habits!
As we grow older, blood pressure tends to increase and create strain on the heart and its arteries. Though older people do suffer from hypertension, it is not always a natural result of aging. Hypertension can affect adults of all ages, at times due to excess sodium in our diets, lack of physical activity, and other modifiable risk factors.
In One Heart, Five Habits you’ll learn:
- Which foods to introduce into your diet and which to avoid
- How exercise and rest can help you stay healthy and reduce stress
- How to monitor your progress so you can follow through with these lifestyle changes
By following the five practices laid out in this book, readers can reduce their blood pressure through lifestyle changes, and, more importantly, keep it within an optimal range—leading to longer and healthier lives.
