9. Get enough sleep
Studies have shown that people who slept less than five hours per night were nearly 40 percent more likely to suffer from heart disease than people who slept an average of eight hours. So the key is to try and stay within that eight hour range, and you’re doing your heart a favor. Sleeping on time is good habit to stay fit and healthy.
10. Preventive screenings
Preventive health screenings can give you and your doctor a lot of information about how at risk you are for cardiovascular disease. These screenings should include everything from cholesterol and blood pressure levels to family history of heart disease.
