You have probably heard how prevalent heart disease is. In fact, heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the United States. With risk factors steadily on the rise, it has never been more important for women to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Here are five good heart health tips to help you do just that.
Good Heart Health Tips
The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week to prevent heart disease and stroke. You can walk, run, do jumping jacks, sit up, and push ups, or any other physical activity you enjoy such as yoga or rock climbing. You may even want to get your 30 minutes of exercise with your partner to make it more fun.
Keeping stress out of our lives isn’t easy, but take the time to unwind with breathing exercises, yoga, or a warm bath. Getting enough sleep will also help your body deal with stress better and maintain your weight better.
3. Lower Sodium Intake
Reduce sodium in your meals by using less salt and choosing low sodium options when available.
4. Make Healthier Cooking Choices
Try baking, roasting or steaming, instead of frying. Choice lean meats and whole grains for good heart health. Eat plenty of in season vegetables.
