Protecting yourself against a heart attack really needs to be something that concerns you greatly. With that said, heart disease and heart attacks are a few of the leading causes of death among people these days. Even though it is clearly difficult to completely prevent having a heart attack, you can find several essential approaches you can take to help safeguard yourself against experiencing a heart attack. One approach is diet – eat the right foods! The second approach is to commence a daily exercise regimen.
Tired of listening to advice about heart attack prevention? I suppose individuals like me who have already experienced a heart attack will continue to give this advice about preventing heart attacks until the yearly number of victims is reduced significantly.
Here is a video from the National Institutes of Health that I wish I had seen before my heart attack:
Since the heart is a muscle, it should be exercised on a regular basis and conditioned like all of the other muscles in the body. The best way to improve and preserve the health of your heart is to get fit. Exercise is very important in the prevention of a heart attack from taking your life. Chances are if your body is fit then your heart will be fit and healthy.
Setting aside time for exercise and getting in shape should be high on your list of priorities. The three most common excuses heard about why people aren’t in better shape are that they are too tired, very busy, and that exercising costs too much cash.
Being too tired to exercise is ironic for the simple reason that exercise is one of the very best methods for you to get energy and to help you sleep well at night. Consequently, the very best way to have the energy to exercise is to simply start exercising. Even a small amount of brisk walking will do wonders in helping you prevent a heart attack. 30 minutes of activity a day will work wonders for your heart health!
Making the claim that you don’t have sufficient time in your day to exercise clearly indicates where you have placed exercise in your daily priorities. Examine your daily schedule and see what you are making time for – eating out, sleeping in, watching television? If you want to really want to prevent a heart attack then modify that daily schedule to include fifteen or twenty minutes of exercise. This is easy and very doable.
Your heart is worth it. Walking is free so no excuses about the cost of exercise! Irrespective of the sacrifices you need to make in order to get fit, preventing a heart attack is the most loving things you can do for yourself and the ones you love. Get moving today on that exercise schedule!
