Health Tip of the Day

Do Something Different

Try these ideas when you need a fresh start:

  • Go for a walk. If the weather is rainy, do your walking at the local mall.

  • Plan mini-vacations, such as a weekend or day trip. To break up a routine that's become monotonous, you need new things to look forward to.

  • Invite company over.

  • Create separate space: Mom's night out. Dad's afternoon out. An outing with friends for the kids.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
