Take Your Pulse
Old rule: You need an EKG to get the rhythm of your heart and find out if anything’s wrong.
New rule: Take your pulse for 60 seconds every day and feel for irregularity. Your pulse should clock off beats like a metronome with a regular interval between each. If you notice that the beats are irregular, you might have a heart condition called atrial fibrillation and you should see your doctor.
