馃挕 Life's Essential 8 describes some simple steps you can take to lead a healthier lifestyle.

馃崗 Eat better: Try to follow a generally healthy eating pattern that includes whole foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, nuts, seeds, and cooking with non-tropical oils like olive and canola.

馃毚 Be more active: Adults should engage in 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity. Walking is ideal for moderate activity levels. Children should have 60 minutes every day, including play and structured activities.

馃毉 Quit smoking: The use of inhaled products that release nicotine, including traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and vaporizers, is the leading cause of preventable death in the US, including about one-third of all deaths from heart disease. And about one-third of US children aged 3 to 11 are exposed to secondhand smoke or vaping.

馃寷 Sleep healthily: Getting a good night's sleep is vital for cardiovascular health. Adults should aim for an average of 7 to 9 hours, while babies and children need more depending on their age. Studies show that sleeping too much or too little is associated with heart disease.

馃 Manage weight: Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight has many benefits. Body Mass Index (BMI), a numerical value of your weight about your height, is a useful indicator. The optimal BMI for most adults ranges between 18.5 and less than 25. You can calculate it online or consult a healthcare professional.

馃 Manage cholesterol: High levels of non-HDL or "bad" cholesterol can lead to heart disease. Your healthcare professional may consider non-HDL cholesterol as the preferred number to monitor, instead of total cholesterol because it can be measured without fasting and is reliably calculated across all individuals.

馃└ Manage blood sugar: Most of the food we eat is converted into glucose (or blood sugar), which our body uses as energy. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. As part of testing, tracking hemoglobin A1c may better reflect long-term control in people with diabetes or prediabetes.

鉂わ笍 Manage blood pressure: Keeping your blood pressure within acceptable ranges can keep you healthy for longer. Optimal levels are below 120/80 mm Hg. High blood pressure is defined as a systolic pressure of 130 to 139 mm Hg (the top number in a reading) or a diastolic pressure of 80 to 89 mm Hg (the bottom number).
