Preventing heart disease
Keeping your heart healthy, whatever your
age, is the most important thing you can do to help prevent
and manage heart disease.
Taking exercise, eating a healthy diet,
encouraging children to be heart healthy and being aware of dangers
such as smoking, drinking, high blood pressure, and stress are all
important for your long term heart health, whether you currently
have heart disease or not.
1. Eating healthily
A healthy diet helps to reduce
your risk of developing heart disease, or if you've already got
heart problems it will help to protect your heart.
2. Being active
People of all ages who are physically
active are less likely to get cardiovascular disease as those
that are inactive.
3. Getting the right support
Having friends around you who are supportive of your goals is
very important. Our online community
and heart matters online
magazine will help you get the support,
motivation and information you need to keep your heart
