Heart Health Values Exposed By Your Daily Habits

A value is a person's principle or standards of behavior determining what is important in their life. A habit is a regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up. Did you know that your daily habits expose what you value the most? How do your daily habits expose the value you place upon your heart health?

Let's discuss this concept a bit further. If you are in the habit to exercising three times a week, it is evident that you value your physical health. If you are in the habit of sorting your recyclables each day, it is evident that you value taking care of our environment and reducing and reusing.

How does this apply to your heart? What do your daily habits say about how much you value your heart health?

Did you know that if you tend to shop the perimeter of the grocery store, where fresh foods like fruits, vegetable, dairy, meat and fish are usually located, this can be an indication that you value your heart health? It is a sign that you are avoiding the center aisles where junk foods and processed foods lurk.

Did you know that if you have an active hobby such as hiking, biking or walking with friends, this could be an indication that you value your heart health? A good rule of thumb is to exercise at least 30 minutes per day, but it's important to consult your doctor about what is the right amount for you.

Did you know that if you consult a wellness center such as Corrielus Cardiology to stay empowered and educated, this is an indication that you value your heart health?
