You may be great at doing your daily exercise but that is really not enough. If you sit around for the rest of the day have you really accomplished anything. Get up and be active all day long. For example if you have a desk job it is important that you get up every hour and move around a little. This will help your circulation even if you only walk to the next office or restroom. And let’s don’t even think watching movies one after the other is healthy. Watch them if you chose but use the commercials to do push-ups or dance around.
You will be surprised how much better you feel at the end of the day.
It is a no brainer that we need to exercise, eat a healthy diet. It is also important to keep a check on our blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels. Don’t put off doing these things for your heart. Start now. Check then as often as your doctor recommends.
If you must drink do so in moderation. Some say a daily drink may have benefits for the heart. However, more than one drink a day can raise certain fats in the blood and increase blood pressure. So is it really worth it?
You do not have to eat food that is bland and boring. For instance, a Mediterranean-style diet using olive oil, nuts, fruit, whole grains, fish, and lean protein can be very tasty. It helps keep your heart healthy, thanks to the “good” fats, fiber, and nutrients. Plus, you’ll actually want to stick to this diet because it tastes so good!
You may not want to hear this but our “belly fat” is really bad for our hearts. Get out the tape measure and see how much work you have to do in this area. (red flag for women is more that 35 inches and for men 40 inches) Losing just a small amount of weight is good for your heart.
For years now we have known that smoking is bad for the heart. But many people are surprised that second hand smoke can also hurt the heart and blood vessels. If you are a smoker and want stop for your own health think about what you are doing do those around you. Do you love then enough to give up the habit that is bad for all of you?
If you are a non smoker but spend a lot of time around a smoker who will not stop insist they not smoke around you. (not in your car, home, office) Show some tough love. Encourage them to kick the habit but don’t nag.
