The heart is your main muscle that gives you life and strength. It pumps your blood through the body and supplies the necessary nutrients and oxygen. When it comes to heart you really want to make healthy choices, so let's learn how to keep your heart healthy and live longer.

In this article, I will write about four tips you can follow to keep your heart healthy and even live longer. Let us begin.

Reduce stress

People don't even know how much of their problems come from stress. There are researches says that there is a correlation between stress and a heart disease. There are few things you can o to prevent it. Remember, only you can actually take care of yourself.

Alcohol is bad for your health

First of all, try to find some time only for yourself to relax. If it won't be enough, think about meditating. Another thing is to exercise yoga, that will not only reduce your stress but will also improve your body health.

Reduce alcohol and quit smoking

Have you ever heard that every-day glass of wine will improve your health? Well maybe, but drinking too much of alcohol will raise your blood pressure and can finish with heart failure. So if you really want to reduce a risk of any heart issues, you should definitely limit the amount of alcohol you dring every day.

Smoking can be deadly not only for your lungs but also can harm your heart. Better find yourself other habits like exercising :-) Oh, and remember, that even if you are not smoking, try to avoid places where people do this. Secondhand smoke can be also dangerous.

Excercise regularly to improve your health

If you want to keep your heart healthy and live longer, you should exercise regularly, minimum two-three times a week (but the best would be 5 times a week, minimum 30minutes daily). If you do this, you will not only keep healthy body weight but also lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

If your condition is low, you can start slowly - just choose only that exercises you are able to do. You will increase the difficulty later.

Keep your blood pressure low

Eat healthily

So what to eat to live longer and keep our heart healthy? You should pick mostly fresh vegetables and fruits. Try to avoid processed meats and unhealthy food with a lot of fats. Except that, buy food that will provide you fiber, minerals, and vitamins.
