February Is American Heart Month

Home is where the heart is – you can’t have a healthy home without a healthy heart! Do you know how to reduce your chances of contracting heart disease?

Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women across the United States. There are many natural reasons like mutations and family history of illness to explain some of these cases, and the others can be explained by poor diet and essentially no exercise. That is what American Heart Month is trying to combat so that Americans can live a long and healthy life. Here are a few things you can do to prevent heart disease.*

  1. Visit Your Doctor Frequently
    Your heart may feel healthy to you, but that doesn’t mean it is. Visit your doctor at least once a year for a regular check-up. By doing so, your doctor may detect heart irregularities early enough to make the adjustments to your diet and exercise to delay the onset of, and even prevent heart disease.
  2. Exercise Periodically
    Humans were not made to be stagnant for extended periods of time. Our ancestors walked across continents and now, many people only make the walk from their driveway to their car, and from the parking lot to work–with an 8-hour period in which they sit on a chair. You need to exercise at least 30 minutes, at least three times a week.
  3. Eat More Vegetables
    Vegetables should make up a majority of your meals every single day. You should also reduce your meat consumption to only once a week. The absence of meat not only does wonder for your heart; it is great for the environment!

Even with these prevention tactics, genetics and the merciless curve balls life throws may be too much to overcome. This is why a health insurance policy is exactly what you need–to financially protect you from the incredibly expensive medical bills. When looking for a great policy suited for you, contact Risk Management LLC for all of your Brookfield, Wisconsin insurance needs!

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
