Tips for Lowering Stress to Prevent Heart Disease

Part of the Heart Disease For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Stress is known to be bad for your health — especially your heart. To minimize stress and maximize a heart-friendly lifestyle, use the following suggestions:

  • Modify factors that can compound stress. Get enough rest. Don't overconsume caffeine. And so on.

  • Live in the present. Quit fearing the future or regretting the past. Make the most of today.

  • Get out of your own way. Don't dwell on the negative or indulge in negative self-talk.

  • Take time out. Step away from it all for ten minutes a day. Take a stroll. Meditate. Nap. Tune into the calm.
