Ways to keep your heart healthy

"Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death for men and women in this country," says Dr. Haythe, who is also the co-director of the Women’s Center for Cardiovascular Health at Columbia. "The key to longevity is to take really great care of your heart."

Dr. Haythe explains that your heart is a muscle and, therefore, like your other muscles, it needs to stay in shape. "It’s also intimately connected with your neurological system," she says. "So your mood and stress levels have a huge impact on how your heart feels."

Heart health tips:
  • Set exercise goals
  • Stick to a Mediterranean-style diet
  • Prioritize healthy sleep habits
  • Try meditation
  • Take care of your teeth
