The Healthy Heart Pocketbook

Keeping your heart as healthy as possible is an absolute must, both for how you feel in the present moment and how you feel in the future. Taking good care of your heart now is super important if you want to live a long and happy quality of life. This healthy heart pocketbook will help you to keep your heart as healthy as possible:

Watch What You Eat

The food you eat should be kind to your heart, so make sure you’re eating plenty of vegetables and healthy fats, such as nuts and avocados. Eating too many processed or fatty foods is a big no-no!

Drink One Glass Of Red With Dinner

Studies have shown that having a glass of red with dinner can have multiple health benefits, such as keeping the heart healthy and staving off dementia. Make sure you stick to one though!

Get Some Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise, otherwise known as cardio, is great for heart health. Going for a walk, running, or jogging a couple of times a week is a great way to stay healthy and keep those endorphins coming.


Stress can wreak havoc on your health and life. Find ways to de-stress, such as deep breathing and even meditation. Think about cutting back on the amount of caffeine you consume too!

Although it’s important to look after your heart as you age, most people don’t realize that things like cardiac arrest can happen to anybody at anytime. Don’t worry though; there are things you can look at to prevent something fatal from happening! The infographic below on Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) can assist you. AEDs treat ventricular defibrillation, which is a major cause of sudden cardiac arrest. As selecting an AED can be overwhelming, this infographic can help you.

  1. A great post! I think the hardest for people is to de-stress. With work schedules, home duties, children’s schedules, people have little time for themselves. Have a great week, Christy. Hugs.

  2. Great post and infographic Christy. So glad I started going back to the gym. Really. I try and talk myself out of going with being busy, but I feel so much better after I go. ❤ 🙂
