Top 10 Lifestyle Changes Your Heart Will Appreciate
1. Skip the elevator and use the stairs instead. Just start with one flight. Soon, you'll be ready for two.
2. Start parking your car at the far end of the parking lot. The short walk everyday to and from the store or school helps your heart.
3. If you ride a bus or subway, get off a stop before your destination. Walk the rest of the way.
4. If you can, spend a few minutes of your lunch break taking a stroll outside work or school. It will also help boost your energy levels after lunch.
5. Housework that is done vigorously counts as exercise. Vacuming or mopping can be a real workout!
6. If you have a yard, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, and raking leaves are also chores that count as exercise.
7. If you have a dog, take it for brisk walks twice a day, and benefit your heart and his!
8. If you have a family, schedule an after-dinner walk. It’s great to help digestion and to start clearing the mind to get ready for bed.
9. Include oats into your daily routine. Just a cup of cooked oatmeal will provide wonderful cholesterol-reducing benefits. (Be sure to check out this month’s special feature on oats!)
10. Try to laugh! Laughter helps release pent up stress and has been proven keep your heart healthy and happy.
