According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is responsible for approximately one of every three deaths in the United States. With an average of 2,200 Americans dying due to cardiovascular disease each day, there is an average of one death every forty seconds.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help prevent you from becoming one of these statistics. Learning to manage stress is one way to keep your heart healthy. Here are a few ways to manage stress:
- Get moving! Working out regularly is a good way to keep your heart healthy and help you stress less. Whether you’re walking around the neighborhood or gardening in the backyard, getting off of the couch is the first step to getting healthier.
- Call a friend or family member to chat. Sometimes having a conversation with someone you love is all it takes to makes the worries of your day melt away and put a smile on your face.
- Try something new! Pick up a hobby you’ve been wanting to try, travel to a new place, or try a new healthy recipe. Stepping outside of the norm is a good way to de-stress.
- Make sure you’re getting enough sleep each night. Getting quality sleep is a good way to reduce stress.
Take care of yourself and stay healthy!
