WILL THE BEAT GO ON?

Take the lead toward keeping your brain and heart healthy!
Get your blood pressure and cholesterol checked today!
Participate in activities that stimulate your brain!

Be Aware!

High blood pressure and high cholesterol usually have no warning signs and can lead to heart disease. Lack of brain-stimulating activities invites Alzheimer's.

Target numbers are:
Blood Pressure: no more than 120/80
Total Cholesterol: 200 or less
Low Density Lipids (LDL): 130 or less
High Density Lipids (HDL): 40 greater

Actions to improve your numbers:

Stop smoking
Increase your physical activity – Ballroom Dance, walk, swim, or ride a bicycle at least 20 minutes a day, three days a week.
Avoid fats that are solid at room temperature. For example: animal fats, cream, butter, fat in dairy products and hydrogenated fats.
Lower your stress level
Maintain a healthy weight
Eat a balanced diet including five servings of fruit and vegetables daily
