Tips to Lower Your Risk of a Heart Attack or Stroke

Do you want to cut the odds of a heart attack or stroke? Sometimes just small tweaks to your lifestyle can be a huge help. Try this step-by-step approach.

1. Exercise a Little Each Day

Moderate physical activity lowers your chances of getting a heart attack by 30% to 50%. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise that gets your heart pumping at least 5 days a week. Brisk walking or swimming are some good choices. On the other 2 days, do strength training, like lifting weights.
If you've got a tight schedule, break your exercise routine into small chunks. Try a 15-minute walk in the morning and another before lunch.
