Follow an appropriate exercise program

exercise-group-youngerOne vital step toward reducing your chances of having a heart attack is making the time to exercise. Today, with our fast-paced society, people must schedule time to exercise. Choose an activity that you enjoy doing, then talk with your health care provider about an exercise plan that meets your individual capabilities and needs. An exercise program will help in the management of almost all stroke and heart attack risk factors.

Try to include moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 40 minutes each day for at least 3 to 4 days per week, above usual activity, at work or home. Regular physical activity will help to promote health, psychological well-being, and a healthy body weight. Always consult your health care provider regarding your healthy diet and exercise requirements.
