Doing vigorous activity in extremely hot weather can cause a heart attack. Exercise inside a cool and comfortable environment like a gym. Also, drink plenty of water.

The Heart And Lung Association has determined that cigarette smoking causes heart disease. If you smoke, you should quit. If you are over-weight, then you should make it your priority to lose weight. Doing twenty minutes of walking a day can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. The body gets circulation and exercise that it did not get before and may even shed excess pounds that you don’t need.

One thing about sudden death heart attacks. They can occur and any time in your life. You should have your blood pressure checked once a year and your cholesterol levels as well. A good age to start doing this is fifty years-old. A proper diet, however, should begin in your twenties or sooner.

If you absolutely can’t get started on a healthy program of fitness, then join a support group over the internet. Other people love to help out when you can’t do it yourself. There are online counselors, psychologists, and regular people who offer tips and guide you to the area of help you want.
