I just stumbled upon this article  in AARP and found it fascinating! It’s an easy read discussing how to avoid a heart attack and has a few quick questions to analyze your potential risk for a heart attack in the next 10 years. I completed the quiz and was nervous but am glad to report my risk was 1%. I then took a really deep breath!

I encourage you to read the article and take the quiz. It’s important to be well informed about your heath and potential health risks. Be honest with yourself!  By doing this now, you become empowered  to make lifestyle changes to promote healthy aging and  longevity.

Remember, if something is good for your heart, then yes it’s good for your brain! Go Brain!
