Getting Life Insurance in American Heart Month

What better time is there to think about increasing your life insurance coverage than during February? This is American Heart Month–a month dedicated to information and resources on the leading cause of mortality in America, heart disease.

Besides getting us all to think more about heart disease and doing what we can to inform and encourage people, there are several things you can do to improve your own health and reduce the chances of heart disease.

Don’t smoke

Tobacco is a problem for any number of health risks, and heart disease is only one of them. Do yourself a big favor and avoid this risk. Taking this advice could be the best "life insurance" available.

Weight control and healthy eating

Watching your weight is probably the single best thing you can do, as overweight is highly correlated with heart disease. Eating a more heart-friendly and overall healthier diet could be as simple as this:

1. Cut down on fats and salt.

2. Drink more green or black tea.

3. Eat more fish and nuts.

Get more exercise

Walk instead of riding that one block to the convenience store. Take the stairs instead of elevators. Try bicycling for those shorter trips. Good physical exercise can not only help you burn calories and lose weight, but it can also make you feel a lot healthier and happier.
