You can do this following steps at your every day life to keep your heart healthy. This steps has made by Holly Andersen, director of education and outreach at the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and will promote your heart health and overall well-being as quoted from Times Of India.
Know your numbers
You should check your blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride level before you begin the path to good heart health.
Just like an ancient proverb, exercise is the fountain of youth. By doing 20 to 30 minutes of simple walk a day, you can reduce the risk of premature death by more than 50%.
Laugh out loud
Laughter is the medicine. By doing 15 minutes of laughter is equivalent with 30 minutes of aerobic and is good to your cardiovascular health. Laughter has long been linked with healthy function of blood vessels, improve hormone that makes your mood good, and reduction of pain and anxiety.
Focus on waistline, not weight
Waistline is a better measurement of your overall health because the amount of fat on your waistline is correlated with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Get a good night’s sleep
Lack of sleep will increase blood pressure, increase stress, increase appetite and slows down your metabolism, dampens your mood and decreases your cognition.
