Once life gives a second chance, it becomes one’s duty to maintain a healthy commitment to it. This will benefit self and their near and dear ones. So stay heart healthy!
Most victims of a cardiac arrest do not get a second chance of survival. Studies suggest the growing epidemic nature of the cardiovascular disease (CVD).
To take care of one’s heart, even little changes can help. Listed below some of the easy, yet suggestively consistent, steps to maintain a healthy lifestyle:
Follow healthy and a balanced diet routine: Simple dietary modifications like less intake of cholesterol-rich foods, especially trans fat and saturated fat, added sugars, salt and caffeine that can harm the general well being of a person. Instead, an increased intake of fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, and beans can be beneficial. Also, it is good to supplement the diet with Omega-3 fatty acids that are helpful for the metabolism.
Daily exercise and walk: Regular and mild exercising routine boosts up the body metabolism, maintains a healthy heart and boosts the general mood of a person.
Quit smoking and drinking: Smoking is known to cause heavy damage to the normal rhythm of the heart and its arteries. Cutting down on smoking reduces the risk of a second heart attack by about 50%.
Drinking, on the other hand, poses no threat when done in permissible limits. However, beyond the recommended dose, blood alcohol may raise the blood pressure; thereby increasing the chances of a heart attack.
Regular and routine health checkups: It is good to stick to the suggested medications by the practitioner after the first incidence of heart attack. Also, following timely check and follow-ups are equally important. Do not stop or alter the medications without your doctor’s advice.
Lead a healthy Psychosocial life: Socialize, discuss problems with concerned persons, get adequate sleep, consult professionals in case of need, limit emotional involvement with anyone, and join a laughter club. All these activities will help one lead a stress-free happy life.
CONCLUSION: Once life gives a second chance, it becomes one’s duty to maintain a healthy commitment to it. This will benefit self and their near and dear ones. So stay heart healthy!
