Say No To Stress

Performing stress-relieving activities as such meditation, breathing exercises, listening to calming music, enjoying natural beauty, going for walks etc. can help you eliminate stress from your life and thus, keep your heart healthy and safe.
Good Sleep
So as to stay away from heart attacks, you need to get sufficient sound sleep on a daily basis. Irregular and insufficient sleeping may adversely impact your blood circulation and become a cause for heart attacks.
Kick off Obesity
Those extra pounds don’t just look bad on you, they put you on risks for heart attacks. So, get rid of obesity and always maintain a healthy weight and an appropriate BMI.
Quit Smoking and Alcohol

Go out, meet new people. Talk to your friends and family more often. It relieves you of stress, and improves your mood. It is believed that people with a good social-life are at lesser risk of a heart attack than their less social counterparts. – Source by ndtv
