3 Simple Changes for Your Heart

1. Get eight hours of sleep. This helps lower blood pressure and increases your metabolism.

2. Lift weights. Gaining 5 to 10 pounds of lean muscle significantly increases your fat-burning ability.

3. Meditate. Research shows this lowers stress, blood pressure, and the risk of heart attack and stroke, and it also may reverse atherosclerosis.
