    Weight

    Learn about your body mass index (BMI). Successful weight lost has to do with the amount of calories and how much you burn so it is essential to understand how your body works. Certain weight loss programs are not for everyone.

    Quit Smoking

    If you are a smoker, quitting smoking is not easy but will add years to your life. Many find smoking aids that work such as the nicotine patch or medication. The first step is to speak with your doctor on the best methods for you. There are support groups that you can join that understand your struggle and help keep you smoke free.

    Stress Management

    Stress is more of a killer and contributor to heart disease than most people realize. Share your feelings of joy, laugh and get organized. Putting together a daily to-do list, especially during times of crisis, will keep you more balanced. At least once a day, do something for you whether it be exercising, relaxing with a book or sleeping. Focus on the welfare of others; giving of yourself takes you a step away from your own problems.

    These small steps could make a large impact on the risk of heart disease. According to a recent study, “more than half of all sudden cardiac deaths could have been prevented by staying at a healthy weight, eating well, exercising and not smoking.”

    Individuals at high risk for cardiac diseases should look into getting a life insurance policy that will provide for their families if they ever become a victim of sudden cardiac death.
