Preventing heart disease

Heart disease sounds big, isn’t it? Indeed it is; if proper attention is not paid when possible and the good news is that heart diseases can be prevented. Lifestyle management can help in preventing heart diseases.


Heart diseases can be prevented by controlling the risk factors like obesity, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, etc. These can be achieved by following the path of a healthy lifestyle.


Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle includes regularizing certain activities in your routine life. Slight modifications in these can help you gain control over your health. Some of them are:


  • Healthy diet

A healthy diet includes a balanced diet that includes all food groups in the required proportions. A low fat, high fiber and sufficient protein intake is recommended to prevent heart diseases. Fruits and vegetable contains lots of fiber and must be consumed as a major portion along with whole grains.


Limiting the use of salt is particularly important for your blood pressure. Eating healthy fats like those found in fish oils, nuts and seeds is equally important.



  • Regular exercise

Being physically active is another step towards being healthy. It is ideal if you follow an exercise program like walking, jogging, swimming, gym, or aerobics depending on your health. Apart from this it is also necessary that you remain active during the day and keep yourself physically fit and movable by taking part in simple household activities.



  • Healthy weight 

Another most important factor is your weight. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of heart disease. It is therefore necessary to reduce the extra weight and become more active and healthy.


  • Limit habits

Habits like smoking and drinking do not yield much health benefits and can do more harm than good. It is better to avoid or at least restrict the use of such indulgence.


  • Manage risk factors

It is observed that obesity, diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol and high stress levels are the major risk factors for heart disease. Hence it is necessary that you manage these conditions in order to keep yourself healthy. You can control these by following lifestyle management ways or taking treatment as per your medical advice.


Stress is also one important factor that can affect your health. However, as it cannot be controlled it is ideal that you learn some stress management techniques and be able to deal with your stress in a more comfortable manner.
