Everyone wants the healthiest heart possible. The way you get there is day by day, action by action. Let’s take a look at some of the best things you can do for yourself that will benefit your heart starting today!

  1. Vitamin D – 75% of heart patients are found to be deficient in Vitamin D which helps reduce heart disease, stroke, strengthens immunity as well as bones.
  2. Green Tea – Green tea has been found to be one of the world’s healthiest drinks. It can help reduce heart attack and stroke.
  3. Breathe – Relax, take slow deep breaths, in and out repeatedly for a few minutes every few hours.
  4. Eat Your Healthy Fats – Low-fat diets can damage the heart over time. Your body needs healthy fats such as avocado, coconut oil, and peanut butter, just ditch the saturated and hydrogenated fats.
  5. Track Your Steps – Get a smartwatch, fit bit or old school pedometer and see how far you walk daily. Try to increase every day.
  6. Check out a Mediterranean diet – It is found to be one of the healthiest diets in the world helping to fight cancer, arthritis, heart disease and other illnesses.
  7. Stay positive – having a good outlook and beliefs about your health translate into the physical. Visualize yourself as you want to be – in good health and enjoying life.
  8. Time for yourself – You are of no good to anyone if you wear yourself out trying to please others all the time. Take 30 minutes daily to meditate, go for a walk, or just sit and enjoy the silence.
  9. Build muscle at the gym – More muscle leads to less fat. So pick up the weights right along with doing cardio. Women you as well. The stronger you are later in life the more readily and gracefully you will age.
  10. Stay away from Sugar – Especially refined processed sugars. They often lead to excess weight and in turn diabetes.

The sooner you start the better you will feel. Get going and take steps to the new improved healthier you today. Call Tampa Cardiovascular Associates to schedule an appointment if you are searching for a cardiologist or vein specialist. 813-975-2800.
