Save Yourself A Heart Attack
I went to my doctor not too long ago because I was was feeling some abnormal chest pains. Upon checking my vitals we found out that everything was fine. I was dealing with some stress issues and my body was talking to me to tell me to chill out a little.
I was told in order to keep my heart healthy though that I would have to get moving. The good news is that you don't have to run a marathon or spend every waking hour working out in gym to reap the benefits. If you exercise 30 minutes a day five days a week, you can reduce a heart attack risk by 50 percent.
The top four ways to live a heart-healthy life:
- Be active for at least 30 minutes a day.
- Choose foods that are low in sodium and saturated fat.
- Don't smoke or take steps to quit smoking.
Know your numbers. If your blood glucose (sugar), cholesterol, blood pressure and/or BMI are abnormal, get treatment.
