In my previous post, 7 Ways to Boost Your Heart Health Now, I shared a few of my favorite diet-related and behavioral tips to help you improve your heart health, but there’s even more you can do to give your heart as much love as possible. Try adding a tip a week or all at once if you’re rarin’ to go. What’s wonderful about my happy heart prescription is that overdosing is all but impossible, the side-effects boost health rather than undermine it, and each tip puts you on the path to a healthier, stronger, more resilient heart. Sound good? Then climb aboard the love-your-heart train:
Stress. We’ve all experienced it. For some folks it’s intermittent, for others it’s relentless, and flat-out exhausting. When stress threatens to completely overwhelm, millions of people turn to what they believe is the quickest fix they can grab – a pill or a glass of wine to help bring them ‘back down to earth’. Though it may seem like a reasonable solution, do it a bit too much and you start to lose touch with your ability to calm or comfort yourself naturally. Take it a bit further and you’re looking at dependence or even addiction to substances that can destroy your body’s health.
Resolutions. So many of us make them, break them and then throw in the towel till next year rolls around. For many it’s a disheartening ritual. Frankly, I think the idea of resolutions is somewhat outdated. Instead of making big, hard, doomed-to-fail resolutions, let’s break ‘em down, call them “life tweaks,” and commence making a few little adjustments every day. Look at what’s not working or dragging your body or spirit down and then start the break up process, like ending a bad relationship. If going cold turkey works better for you, then by all means do so. No matter how you go about it, the idea is to start letting go of stuff that undermines your body or soul.
