PROJECT: Heart

Why should you be concerned about the health of your heart?

1. Heart disease (which includes Heart Disease, Stroke and other Cardiovascular Diseases) is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States.

2. In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Every 60 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.

3. About 720,000 people in the U.S. suffer heart attacks each year. Of these, 515,000 are a first heart attack and 205,000 happen in people who have already had a heart attack.

4. In 2011, about 326,200 people experienced out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the United States. Of those treated by emergency medical services, 10.6 percent survived. Of the 19,300 bystander-witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the same year, 31.4 percent survived.

5. Direct and indirect costs of heart disease total more than $320.1 billion. That includes health expenditures and lost productivity.

PROJECT: Heart

At the heart of a healthy lifestyle is good nutrition. Making smart food choices can help reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. The good news is, eating right doesn’t have to be hard or require a special diet.

Smart choices means eating whole foods and reducing or eliminating as much as possible, processed foods.

Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: DRINK MORE WATER

We don’t function at full capacity when we’re dehydrated.

The Institute of Medicine recommends roughly 13 cups (3 liters) of water per day for adult men and 9 cups (2.2 liters) per day for women.

There are many simple ways to make sure you and your family are drinking plenty of fluids each day.

And don't forget, food provides about 20 percent of water intake as well and many fruits and vegetables are more than 90 percent water by weight.

Make an effort to monitor your fluid intake and you’ll be functioning better in no time.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: BE MORE ACTIVE

When you are stressed, you may have tried to relieve your anxiety by: eating comfort foods, zoning out for hours in front of the TV, or increasing your use of tobacco, alcohol or drugs.

All of these coping strategies represent attempts to take your mind off your worries, or in some instinctual way to alter your brain chemistry. Sometimes this works. Many of these strategies, however, have negative consequences, especially when carried out repeatedly over time.

Exercise is an alternative to these negative coping strategies.

Did you know? Research has shown that the more physically active you are the more you will experience feelings of excitement and enthusiasm.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: EAT MORE WHOLE FOODS

Did you know?

Fruits and vegetables are low in calories. This is why they are great to eat as snacks. While a bag of chips contains fat, oil, and a lot of calories, an apple contains none of those things.

It is actually crazy how many fruits and vegetables you can eat before the calories start stacking up so don’t be afraid to eat them.

That said, some fruits carry a high amount of sugar, so don't overdo it on sweet fruit.

For example, a medium sized apple has about 95 calories. A serving of potato chips (1 oz) has around 152 calories depending on the brand you are eating.

What are you snacking on?

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: EAT MORE WHOLE FOODS

Fruits and vegetables are a significant part of a whole food diet. They are an important part of a healthy diet for many reasons.

One reason is that fruits and vegetables contain phytochemicals.
In the past decade, scientists have identified hundreds of biologically active plant-food components called phytochemicals (or phytonutrients).

These phytochemicals include powerful antioxidants:

1. Lycopene, a red-colored carotenoid found in tomatoes, watermelons, pink grapefruits, apricots, and pink guavas; Lycopene has antioxidant properties that appear to "promote a healthy heart" and to reduce the risk of cancer.

2. Anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant that gives deep blue color to berries found in lack currants, elderberries, blueberries, strawberries) and their juices, and in red and purple grapes, red wine, sweet cherries, eggplants, black plums, blood oranges, and red cabbage; anthocyanins help to prevent heart disease and cancer as well as enhance memory and help prevent age-related declines.

3. Pterostilbene, which appears to turn on a "switch" in cells that breaks down fat and cholesterol, and is found in blueberries and some varieties of grapes; pterostilbene helps support healthy cellular function.

The only way to be sure that you are getting these phytochemicals is to eat plant foods in their whole, unprocessed form.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: DRINK MORE WATER

Water makes up more than half of your body weight. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work correctly.

You lose water each day when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even when you breathe. You lose water even faster when the weather is really hot, when you are physically active, or if you have a fever. Vomiting and diarrhea can also lead to rapid water loss. If you don’t replace the water you lose, you can become dehydrated.

Do you drink the water your body needs every day?

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: SLEEP MORE, STRESS LESS

To live a healthy lifestyle, it is important that you get the sleep you need and build into your life, strategies for relaxation and rest.

You might ask: “What is the difference between sleep and rest?”
-Sleep is an activity that generally occurs at night with eyes closed, nervous system relatively inactive, muscles relaxed and consciousness practically suspended.
-Rest is ceasing work or movement in order to relax and refresh oneself and recover strength and energy.

Are you getting enough sleep and rest?

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: BE MORE ACTIVE

Do you have trouble exercising on a regular basis?

Most people look at exercise as a means to burn energy and lose weight.

It might help though if you change your thinking and instead think of exercise as a great way to gain energy and stimulate your body and mind.

In a busy life, with so many demands fighting for your attention, it might be hard to find time for an hour trip to the gym. So, start with simple activities you can incorporate into your daily routine.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: EAT MORE WHOLE FOODS

To live a healthier lifestyle it is essential to eat a "whole" food diet. Whole foods are foods in their natural state with little or no processing. Whole foods includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats.

Many people in the United States eat processed foods on a regular basis. Processed foods are foods that are typically packaged, that have gone through complex processing steps, and that often contain additives, artificial flavorings and other chemical ingredients.

Most nutritionists would agree the avoiding processed foods as much as possible and eating whole foods is a healthier choice.

If you feel that you just don't have the time to take care of you, you need to rethink your life, your schedule.

Start thinking long-term and strategic. Because, without YOU--your day doesn't happen. Get up 15 minutes earlier to take care of you, delegate some of your tasks or projects or jus drop something off your schedule.

However you do it, make the time.
