“BEST OF THE BEST” Heart Health Websites #1

Perhaps one of the most useful websites for cardiovascular wellness in produced by the American Heart Association

Heart Health Websites and Heart MonitorMy Life Check is remarkable because it provides a step-by-step personally designed action plan for those who are interested in making a resolution to change the rest of their lives.  The program starts by taking a health assessment and providing a useful representation about where you stand.  The interface is very user friendly and the graphics are color coded to aid in the understanding of where you are and where you need to be.  The assessment is composed of 7 components referred to as “The Simple 7:”

  • Get Active
  • Control Cholesterol
  • Eat Better
  • Manage Blood Pressure
  • Lose Weight
  • Reduce Blood Pressure
  • Stop Smoking

Next, the site offers a specific plan for you depending upon your individual assessment!  Useful real-life vignets of actual patients, and videos will keep you active in your endeavor to lofe a healthier life.  Perhaps the most useful aspect of this site is the fact that each person is encouraged to revisit the health assesment every month and the site allows you to track your improvement from month to month!  We give an A+ to My Lifecheck.
