Healthy lifestyle habits can slow or even reverse the damage from high cholesterol or high blood sugar. You can reverse diabetes, obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol and heart disease by making simple everyday changes.

Making healthy change can take time. It can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. But if you are making the change to reverse a chronic health issue timing is not so long.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Getting quality sleep
  • Eating well
  • Stress reduction
  • And more

To make healthy habits take small steps and set realistic expectations.
