Do we all have the opportunity to make healthy heart choices? Are we sometimes forced to make hard choices because we lack the knowledge, do not have a safe place to walk, are forced to eat unhealthy meals because that is the only available or affordable one? Our environment definitely has a huge impact on our ability to make heart-healthy choices.

If you, in your relatively privileged position still face challenges that prevent you from making heart-healthy choices then you can appreciate the enormity of the task ahead. Fortunately for us when we all come together even the small changes we make may have a dramatic effect.

A cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease such as heart disease and stroke is the world’s number one killer. This killer appears to be on the path to rid the world of humans and we certainly seem to be creating the right environment to enhance its mission.

Many of us eat or snack for various reasons and it’s rare to find a restaurant or coffee shop that serves good food yet can’t make ends meet. We eat with careless abandon when we are happy or while we celebrate, snack or eat some more when we are bored or feel stressed out and for a minority of us we may even overeat while we grief. We will gladly refer to some of these scenarios as comfort meals.

An occasional over-indulgence has hardly any effect on our long-term health goals but the alarm bells should begin to sound when our tongues seem to determine every decision we make. The tongue is extremely powerful no matter how you look at it and if one does not learn to control it, it can lead to heartaches (literally). Not only will an uncontrolled tongue cause you to eat the wrong foods setting you up for a life-long journey with life-style diseases but in addition an unguarded word or two may set you up for a life of ridicule and an army of enemies. How I wish that nerve-rich tongue could be locked away most of the time.

Unfortunately for us, the tongue will remain as it is and it’s our duty to find ways of controlling it. Mastering a few steps may henlp us control our cravings for food and unhealthy snacks.
