Ten Ways for You to Prevent Stroke

1. Stop Smoking! Just stop it. Seriously.

2. Know Your Cholesterol Levels. You don’t want to be a solid. Check it out.

3. Control and be aware of your blood pressure.

4. See your doctor for a check-up. Find one you like and go.

5. Reduce your salt intake. Put the shaker down!

6. Stay physically active: Sit & Fit, anyone?

7. Eat your fruit and vegetables. I mean it.

8. If you are a diabetic, manage your disease. No one else cares as much. It’s not their body.

9. Take care of your heart. You only get one ticker.

10. Maintain a healthy weight. Put down the donuts. Pick up the carrots. Don’t whine.
