Tips for a healthier heart

 

  • Quit smoking now: Twelve months after quitting, your increased risk of dying from heart disease will be half that of a continuing smoker.
  • Improve your diet: Include wholegrain cereals, legumes, fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts in your diet and lower your risk of heart disease.
  • Exercise regularly: Walk briskly for 30 minutes a day and reduce your risk of heart attack by one third.
  • Maintain your friendships: People with supportive friendship networks are at less risk of heart disease.
  • Eat more fish: Oily fish like tuna, sardines or salmon are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and will boost your good cholesterol.
  • Switch your chocolate choice: Switch from milk chocolate to dark chocolate. When eaten in moderation, dark chocolate is good for your heart.
  • Limit your alcohol: It is recommended you limit yourself to no more than two standard glasses of alcohol a day if you are a man, or one glass a day if you are a woman.
  • Avoid salty and high sodium foods: Don’t add salt when preparing or eating your meals.
  • Have a diabetes test: Uncontrolled diabetes can damage your artery walls and contribute to heart disease.
