We all know that a healthy diet and regular exercise are part of the arsenal we need for healthy hearts. But here are a few other weapons to consider:
- Good guys: healthy fats. Not all fats are bad guys. A healthy diet includes saturated, polyunsaturated and unsaturated fats. But trans fats are your enemy. They clog your arteries and increase the risk of heart disease and strokes. These troublemakers are often found in fried foods, snack foods, packaged baked goods and margarines.
- Good guy: Mr. Sand Man. When you don’t get enough sleep, you can significantly increase your risk for heart disease. According to one study, adults who sleep less than six hours each night are roughly twice as likely to suffer strokes or heart attacks. Make sure to get about seven to eight hours of sleep every night.
- Good guys: Your toothbrush and floss. Did you know poor brushing and flossing habits could be taking a toll on your ticker? The theory is that bacteria that plays a role in gum disease travels through your bloodstream and increases the level of the C-reactive protein, a marker for blood vessel inflammation. These higher levels make you more prone to heart disease and strokes.
- Good guys: Those walking sticks you call legs. Spending most of the day sitting on your keister is bad for your heart, even if you exercise frequently, according to researchers. A sedentary lifestyle increases your risk for cardiovascular disease and blood clot formation. So, get up and get moving whenever you can.
The good news: Heart disease is often preventable when you embrace healthy habits and closely monitoring any health conditions.
The same is true for your air conditioner. Regular TLC is the key to keeping it running as efficiently and affordably as possible for as long as possible.
