    1.  Regular exercise: at least 30 minutes three or more times per week.

    2.  Avoid excess salt, especially if you have high blood pressure.

    3.  Eat lots of fruit, vegetables, and fish; eat red meat no more than once per week.

    4.  Alcoholic beverages in moderation: up to one daily for woman and two daily for men.

    5.  Visit your doctor at least once a year to have blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar checked.
