Five Things You Can Do to Improve Heart Health after a Heart Attack
Having a heart attack does not automatically mean your life is over. There are many people who survive heart attacks and go on to lead happy, healthy lives filled with activity and joy. If you have suffered a heart attack, incorporate these five important things into your life to ensure future health and prevent additional heart attacks:
Following a heart attack your doctor will likely recommend a cardiac rehabilitation program. This is typically done at the hospital and it includes monitored exercise, as well as an education program. When necessary, smoking cessation may also be included. The exercises included in your formal rehabilitation program may include riding a stationary bike, low-impact aerobics, swimming, and walking on a treadmill.
In addition to your rehabilitation program, your doctor may also want to work with you to design an at-home exercise program. Exercise is an essential part of heart health, but once you have developed heart disease or had a heart attack, there may be limitations on what you can do. Safe exercises your doctor may recommend include walking, swimming, or gentle aerobics.
You should avoid isometric exercises, exercising in extreme weather conditions, exercising in hilly areas, or high-intensity aerobic exercises. It is also important to avoid hot and cold showers after exercise and ensure you stay hydrated during and after your exercise session.
Improve Your Diet
Dietary changes are another important part of heart health. A heart healthy diet includes limited fats, especially saturated and trans fats, limited sodium, limited red meat and high-fat dairy products, plenty of lean protein-rich foods such as fish, and lots of complex carbohydrates. Heart healthy eating also includes plenty of hydration and a consistent, controlled eating schedule.
Care for Emotional Health
In addition to all of the things you do to improve your physical health, your emotional health is also important. Reduce stress and take time to relax. How you feel emotionally can play a major role in your body’s health.
Finally, it is important you follow-up with your doctor after a heart health event. People who were not regular visitors to their doctor before their heart attack can find it difficult to incorporate regular visits into their new lifestyle. This is especially true if there are no longer noticeable symptoms of a heart problem. If you have suffered a heart attack, be sure you visit your doctor regularly so he or she can monitor your improvements and spot a problem early if one occurs.
