Let's face it: We tend to take things for granted. Especially when it comes to our well-being.
After a long day at work, heading straight back home and spending time with the couch always sounds more appealing than spending half an hour at the gym. Heck, even a glass of martini (or two) seems more rewarding than doing anything else that involves cardio.
Most of us get so caught up with work that we forget to set aside some time taking care of ourselves. For both men and women, the biggest factors that contribute to heart disease are smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, family history, age and even stress.
It is about time that we take these facts into account and do something about it. Not for anybody else but ourselves. The first step to doing so is to take charge of your lifestyle. It's just a matter of determination and self-discipline.
Many people think that changing their lifestyle would mean to sacrifice a lot of things. The truth of the matter is, it's about keeping a balance, reducing, lowering and controlling what you eat and what you do as opposed to taking it all away. Take a moment and analyse your lifestyle, family history and general health so you can start making necessary plans to avoid potential health problems such as heart disease or stroke.
