Whether itâs being successful in your quest toward becoming a respiratory therapist or dental professional or smashing your New Yearâs resolutions, itâs all about small, achievable changes. Hereâs a video using the America Heart Associationâs Simple 7, a simple checklist of tips that can lead to better heart health with lasting benefits. And remember, while they may seem obvious, they can individually and collectively help change the course of your overall health.
