Starting at age 18, your blood pressure should be measured at least once every two years to screen for high blood pressure as a risk factor for heat disease and stroke. If you're between 18 and 39 and have risk factors for high blood pressure, you'll likely be screened once a year. People age 40 and older also are given a blood pressure test annually.
We all need at least seven hours of sleep each night. Make sleep a priority in your life. Set a sleep schedule and stick to it by going to bed and waking up at the same times each day. Create an environment for a good sleep.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique that's useful in many emergencies, such as a heart attack. - Even if you are not trained, only provide hands-only CPR.
