Controllable Risk Factors

Controllable Risk Factors


A "risk factor" is a trait or habit within your lifestyle that increases your chance of having heart or vascular disease. There are some risk factors that you have no control over. But there are many that you do have control over. To improve your heart health, learn what your risk factors are and what you can do to further reduce your risk.

Inspirations, Wednesday September 10

I was recently reading an article that talked about traits that confident people have. One trait is that they don’t get caught up in lots of needless drama. The article stated, “Some people love to stir up controversy and drama for no apparent reason.  Don’t buy in to their propaganda.  Stay out of other people’s drama and don’t needlessly create your own.  Instead, imagine what would happen if you spent this entire day, and every day hereafter, with all your energy directed toward your most positive possibilities.”

This really resonated with me because lately my life seems to be filled with needless drama. And when I think about how much time and energy that drama has zapped from my life, I get frustrated with myself for allowing it to happen.

So, from here on out, I’m going to try to take the author’s very sage advice: “Rather than being annoyed, be amused.  Instead of getting angry, become curious.  In place of envy, feel admiration.  Life is too short to argue, fight or be negative in any way.  Count your blessings, value the people who matter and move on from the drama with your head held high.”

Note to self: Avoid unnecessary drama and focus on positive possibilities.

Moving: It’s one of the best things you can do to lower your cancer risk.



Regular exercise (or moving more) can lower your risk for many cancers including colon, breast and endometrial cancer. If you’re a cancer survivor, exercise can also lower your risk of recurrence.

Here’s how it works.
Sedentary behavior, or sitting for extended periods, can increase your body fat. And, too much total body fat can increase your risk for many cancers and heart disease. Exercise helps you lose fat and maintain a healthy weight. It also produces hormones that help you reduce stress and lower your blood pressure.
