Heart Health for Stressed out Solos

Q: My father suffered from heart disease so I realize I am at a greater risk given my stressful profession as a trader. Are there any preventative measures you can recommend to someone with my history and lifestyle?


 

Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, so you're certainly not alone in worrying about the disease. The good news is that there are ways to lower your risk of heart disease. Changing certain lifestyle habits can definitely help. For starters, you should quit smoking, exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet.

Try to maintain a normal body weight because being overweight or obese can increase your heart disease risk. Make sure to visit your doctor annually and have your blood pressure and cholesterol levels monitored. High blood pressure and elevated cholesterol can put you at an increased risk for a heart attack, so it's important to keep those levels in check. Ask your doctor for recommendations about keeping blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the normal range.
