Throughout February, many individuals wore red gowns on National Wear Red Day and consumed flavonol-rich chocolate on Valentine’s Day to commemorate Heart Health Month. The principles of a heart-healthy lifestyle are well-known: consume an abundance of fruits and vegetables, strive for an adequate fiber intake, engage in regular physical activity, quit smoking if you do, consume alcohol in moderation, and maintain a healthy body weight. However, comprehension does not necessarily result in action. If you know someone who needs encouragement to adopt a healthy lifestyle, now is the moment to remind them of what they must do and why. It could be your husband, who needs extra encouragement to exercise a few times each week, or the mother of one of your children’s best friends, who is not taking care of herself and wants to set a better example for her children. To these fantastic conversation starters, I would add that you should be prepared with specific and actionable ways to enhance your loved one’s heart health. Remember that these changes will not occur immediately, and you will need to exert considerable effort to achieve them. It is suggested to make little adjustments, such as reducing portion sizes, adding an extra serving of vegetables to the lunch plate, and gradually boosting fiber intake throughout the day.
