Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity

The Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity Section is a
heart disease and stroke prevention program from the logo
Michigan Department of Community Health.

Vision: A heart-healthy and stroke-free Michigan.

Mission: Create a heart-healthy and stroke-free Michigan by increasing physical activity and healthy eating, reducing health disparities, and preventing and controlling other cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Ringing in the New Year is always a good time for positive behavior changes such as:

 

  • Quitting tobacco use
  • Increasing your physical activity
  • Reducing your sodium intake
  • Eating healthy foods
  • Getting an annual check-up with your healthcare provider to check your blood pressure and BMI

 

For more information, go to the Million Heartstm website - http://millionhearts.hhs.gov/abouthds/prevention.html#HCP as these positive changes can prevent heart disease and stroke.

 

The American Psychological Association recommends that you use the following five tips to help you make long lasting behavior changes (please consult with your health care provider on these tips):

 

  1. Make a plan that will stick
  2. Start small
  3. Change one behavior at a time
  4. Involve a buddy
  5. Ask for support

 

For more complete information regarding these tips refer to the article at http://www.apa.org/helpcenter/lifestyle-changes.aspx
