February is all about the heart and I don’t just mean Valentine’s Day.  It’s also American Heart Awareness month.  What should you do to keep your heart healthy?  Try these suggestions from The American Heart Association.Did you know heart disease kills more women than cancer?  There are some things you can do to lower your risk of heart disease.

1.  Get regular checkups:

Don’t wait until you start having heart problems.  Make regular checkups part of your life.

2.  Know your risk for heart disease:

Is there a family history of heart disease?  Are you overweight?  Do you smoke?  Know what your risks are for heart disease and take preventative measures to keep your heart healthy.

3.  Maintain a healthy lifestyle:

Making those heart healthy changes are significant because they can lower your risk for heart disease by up to 80 percent.  Exercise for 40 minutes or more daily.  Eat plenty of fruits, veggies, fish and whole grains while lowering your intake of sugar and food high in cholesterol and fat.  It’s also important to relax.  Make time for you.  It’ll do your heart good.

Don’t forget, our sister station WIBX has their Heart Radiothon coming up on February 28th and March 1st at Utica College.  This is WIBX’s 43rd Annual Heart Radiothon.
