Eat healthily

A healthy diet can help reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease and stop you gaining weight.

Stay active

Being active provides long term benefits for your heart health and general health. And if you are inactive, you are more likely to have a heart attack than someone who is active.

Quit smoking

Smoking is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, and smokers are almost twice as likely to have a heart attack compared with people who have never smoked.

Stick to your limits

Drinking too much alcohol is one of the most common causes of hospital admission in the UK. Drinking more than the recommended limits can also have a harmful effect on the heart.
