Important steps to improve your heart health

Many people these days have knowledge about the importance of the health of the heart for happy living. It is well known that every person has to give special care to keep their heart young and make its ticks energetic and lively. How to achieve this will be the million dollar question of the day. So in this article, I am going to explain the most basic and important aspects that a person has to keep in mind and practice to keep his heart young and filled with energy.

Manage stress

Ativities like over eating, smoking, drinking alcohol etc can lead to considerable stress. Adrenaline released from stress increases your heart rate as well as blood pressure.  The stress can also have impact on the immune system of your body and damage artery walls of your blood circulating system. Taking exercises for a minimum time of 30 minutes or walking the distance from your office to your house etc can do many benefits to your overall health and improve the condition of your heart.

Food and mood

Everyday start your life by eating a balanced breakfast that contains fiber, whole grains, lean proteins, good fats etc.  Whole grain bread, oatmeal, millet, barley, etc are good choices for breakfast. Medical research has shown that eating good breakfast daily will improve the mood as well as memory.  It will also give peace of mind and more energy throughout the day. If you have any extra weight it can be trimmed by cutting down the excess calories you eat.  Simple activities like reducing the daily share of ice cream to one or two per week and doing a general walking of 15 minutes a day will give you promising results. Start activities needed to make your heart younger so that you can live for a long time without major health problems or mental stresses.

Lean protein: Protein no doubt is an essential part of our daily diet. Meats that are high in fat content are not advisable for healthy heart. Lean meat is the ideal food for healthy heart because of its low calorie content. Lean chicken, grass fed beef, seafood, low sugar dairy products etc are very suitable for the health of your heart.

If you have any heart related problems, include the above mentioned foods in your daily diet. There is no meaning in meeting a registered dietician and spending much time in listening to his never ending advices. Often such people come out bare handed without understanding or not able to practice what you have listened to.
