Download Letter to Myself: Sample pdf document (185k) handout.

I have learned that I can do many things to improve my health and lower my risk of developing heart disease. I can help my family members make healthy choices, too. During the next 3 months, I will try to do these things to care for my heart:

  1. At work, I will use the stairs instead of taking the elevator.
  2. I will eat 2 cups of fruit (an orange and an apple) every day.
  3. When eating out, I will choose foods that are baked, broiled, or grilled.
  4. I will switch to reduced-fat (2%) milk for 1 month, then to low-fat (1%) milk for 1 month, and finally to fat-free milk.
  5. I will have my blood pressure checked at the local clinic.
