7 Steps to a Healthier Life

by SKHC Editor on February 11, 2010

Cardiovascular diseases are our nation’s number one killer. Since 1963 Congress has required the president to proclaim February “American Heart Month”. During this month the goal is to raise funds for research and pass along information about heart disease and stroke.

Not only does the American Heart Association work with administration to draft and sign this annual proclamation they also designed “My Life Check – Live Better With The Simple 7” with the goal of educating the public on how to improve their health one step at a time.

You probably guess most of these, if not all of them, but it’s never a bad idea to remind yourself of 7 Steps to a Healthier Life.
