BAD HABITS FOR YOUR HEART


WATCHING TV: Sitting for hours increases your risk of heart attack and stroke, even if you exercise regularly. Exercise don’t compensate for the number of hours you sit.
Why? The lack of movement may affect blood levels of fats and sugars. Walking around periodically and if you are at work, standing up to tlak on the phone will help.
LEAVING HOSTILITY AND DEPRESSING UNCHECKED: Are feeling stressed, hostile, or depressed? It can take a toll on your heart.
While everyone feels this way sometime, how you handle it affects your heart health. So it is better to laugh, smile or go somewhere you can talk about your problems.
IGNORING THE SNORING: snoring can be a sign of something more serious: obstructive sleep opnea. this disorder, marked by breathing that is interrupted during sleep, can cause blood pressure to skyrocket. This increases the rate of heart disease \.
If you wake up feeling tired, talk with your doctor.
TOO MUCH OF ACLCHOHOL INTAKE: Sure; studies confirmed that little alchohol is good for your heart, but excess is linked to a greater risk of high blood pressure, high levels of blood fat, and heart failure. In addition, the extra calories can lead to weight gain, a threat to heart health. So stick to not more than two drinks for men per day and one per day for women.
SMOKING OR LIVING WITH A SMOKER: Sure, you have heard it a million times before: Don’t smoke.
Smoking is a total disaster for your health, it promotes blood clots, which can block flow to the heart, and contributes to plague build up in the arteries.

Red meat is high in saturated fat, and theres evidence that processed meat , such as bacon, and hot dogs, increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and colorectal cancer.
STOPPING OR SKIPPING MEDS: lets be honest: taking of pills is pain. There can be side effects. And its easy to forget your meds, especially if you feel fine.
