6 Tips for Better Heart Health

Your heart is a machine, and like every machine it starts wearing down if not maintained properly. There are many diseases like high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack, which can be prevented by just a little effort. If you can save a visit to the cardiologist that way, that would be great, wouldn’t it? So here are a few tips that will get you on the road to better heart health.

1. Take a 10-minute walk. If you don't exercise at all, a brief walk is a great way to start. If you do, it's a good way to add more exercise to your day.
2. Give yourself a lift. Lifting a hardcover book or a two-pound weight a few times a day can help tone your arm muscles. When that becomes a breeze, move on to heavier items or join a gym.
3. Eat one extra fruit or vegetable a day. Fruits and vegetables are inexpensive, taste good, and are good for everything from your brain to your bowels.
4. Make breakfast count. Start the day with some fruit and a serving of whole grains, like oatmeal, bran flakes, or whole-wheat toast.
5. Stop drinking your calories. Cutting out just one sugar-sweetened soda or calorie-laden latte can easily save you 100 or more calories a day. Over a year, that can translate into a 5 Kg weight loss.
6. Breathe deeply. Try breathing slowly and deeply for a few minutes a day. It can help you relax. Slow, deep breathing may also help lower blood pressure.

If you still have any ailments related to the heart, you can find the best cardiologists in Gurgaon and NCR region, there are also top cardiologists in Patna, as well as cardiologists in Darbhanga, in the hinterlands of Bihar, where high-end hospitals have been established by Paras Hospitals Group.
