8 Healthy Habits to Prevent Heart Attacks

Maintain a Balanced Diet: Eat a range of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins (poultry, fish, legumes, and nuts), and healthy fats (olive oil, avocados, almonds). Cut back on refined sweets, processed meals, and saturated and trans fats.

Exercise Regularly: Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise per week, with muscle-strengthening on two or more days.

Overweight and obesity raise heart disease risk. You can maintain a healthy weight by eating well and exercising.

Stop Smoking: Heart disease is strongly linked to smoking. Smokers need help quitting. Also avoid secondhand smoke.

Limit Alcohol: Alcohol raises blood pressure and causes heart disease. Alcohol should be consumed moderately. Guidelines suggest women can have one drink per day and males two.

Manage Stress: Chronic stress raises blood pressure and encourages unhealthy coping behaviors like overeating and smoking, which can cause heart disease. Try deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or your favorite pastimes to reduce stress.

Get enough sleep: Poor sleep quality or duration increases heart disease risk. Get 7-9 hours of good sleep each night. Maintain a sleep regimen, make your bedroom comfy, and limit screen time before bed.

Check BP and cholesterol: Your doctor recommends regular blood pressure and cholesterol checks. High blood pressure and cholesterol increase heart disease risk. Work with your doctor to create a lifestyle management plan for increased levels.
