1. Tame Your Stress
Research conducted at the University of California’s psychiatric department proved that people who feel chronic or permanent stress at their places of work, or even at home, are more than two times likely to suffer a heart attack. Moreover, suffering from depressed raises the risk of heart disease by four fold.
2. Solid Sleep
Research at Harvard Medical School discovered that insufficient amounts of sleep increase the production of inflammatory white blood cells that contribute to developing plaque in blood vessels. This causes them to narrow and harden. Sleep deprivation and fragmented sleep can both lead to heart related issues in the future if not dealt with.
