Healty life

Eat right - making healthy food choices significantly lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attack. Loading up on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and fish keeps the kilos off but your body also needs the right amounts of healthy fat. With high cholesterol fast food and other convenience items taking up a larger role in the modern diet, you will be better off with balanced nutrition that matches your calorie and protein requirement based on your weight and nutritional assessment..

Be active- sedentary lifestyles are the scourge of the modern age. If work and other concerns leave you with no time to exercise, remember that just being physically active doing housework or taking care of the kids already accounts for exercise. To keep moving and do whatever form of exercise is fit for you. Exercise provides health benefits for the whole body like improving circulation and muscle mass function repairing body tissues and reducing inflammation aside from promoting heart protection.

Avoid stress - studies have shown that emotional and physical stress can also increase oxidative damage from free radicals to the whole body. It also raises your blood pressure and makes you more prone to heart attacks. So make sure you set aside some time for rest and relaxation. Step back from the fast lane and engage in relaxing activities like music, reading, enjoying time with your family, or having special hobbies. Your heart will thank you for it.

Have a positive outlook - People who look at the brighter side of life tend to have better productivity and stable relationship. Married couples with positive relationships tend to live longer.
