Exercising is the best way to keep my heart healthy. I try to keep myself active by walking a lot when I can. Whenever possible, I try aerobic exercises and jogging. Coming from a family with a history of stroke, I make sure I control my blood pressure and keep it within the healthy range. I check my blood pressure daily and make sure I have enough rest every day. I also take Omega 3 fish oils to try to naturally lower my cholesterol levels.

I start my day by practicing tai chi in the park every morning. I never skip breakfast and I incorporate fish such as salmon, codfish, and tuna that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vegetables and fruits that are high in anti-oxidants, into my diet. I would snack on a couple of nuts such as walnut and almond whenever I feel hungry in between meals, as nuts help to reduce LDL cholesterol. Instead of being a couch potato watching the television, I get up during the commercial breaks to do stretching. I would also sip a small glass of red wine before I sleep to help reduce blood clot formation and prevent artery damage.

After discovering my borderline-high cholesterol several years ago, I began a mainly plant-based diet, which focuses on fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans – foods rich in fibre and phytosterols which help eliminate cholesterol from the body. I get heart-healthy oils in unsalted nuts, avocados, and olive oil.

For the most part, I avoid processed foods and eating out. These foods are usually high in salt, sugar, and unhealthy trans fats and saturated fats that contribute to hypertension, artery plaque, weight gain, and diabetes – all risk factors for heart attack and stroke.

I also exercise almost every day and try to move as much as possible. It helps keep my metabolism going, keep my heart in shape, and helps prevent weight gain. I try to achieve a balanced lifestyle by managing stress through meditation and hobbies and cultivating fulfilling relationships with family and friends. If I drink alcohol, I choose red wine, which is rich in heart-healthy resveratrol. But I never have more than one serving a day.
