Understanding Heart Health is Important for Seniors

What Every Senior in Victoria, BC Needs to Know About The Importance of Heart Health

Heart Health | The heart is an organ in the body essential to well-being, so is there anything we can do to take special care of it? Experts say three lifestyle habits offer to protect your heart health – better diet, more exercise and less stress.

Specific foods can be incorporated into a diet easily for better heart health. They can even help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels when consumed regularly.

Heart Health Foods:

  1. Eat more cold-water fish: Varieties of salmon, mackerel and tuna
  2. Be nutty: Eat a daily handful of nuts like almonds, macadamia, or walnuts
  3. Enjoy more flavonoids: Flavonoids are found in red grapes, dark chocolate, and tea, to name a few
  4. Look for a rainbow of vegetables: Think about colour. Eat leafy greens, red tomatoes, white, purple or yellow cauliflower, red, yellow or green peppers, keeping variety in the diet

Heart Health Exercises:

  1. Walk or hike – Go anywhere anytime! Make it more fun when you walk with a friend.
  2. Water exercise – Swimming and water exercises are great for everyone and reduce joint pressure.
  3. Bicycle indoors or out – A fun option seniors can do alone or with another.
  4. Senior Yoga – Find a senior yoga class for aging bodies or limitations.
  5. Strength building – Exercise heart muscles with hand weights or weightlifting machines. This helps slow down the loss of muscle tissue that naturally occurs with aging.

Heart Health and Stress Reduction

Stress reduction techniques can reduce blood pressure and other chronic health problems. Set priorities so your schedule isn’t overwhelming and remember to schedule time for fun and relaxation.

  1. Don’t deny yourself. Give yourself permission to do what you love, whether working on a jigsaw puzzle, reading, playing with the dog, drawing or painting. Enjoy activities that put a smile on your face!
  2. Stay socially involved. Invite a friend to go to a community program, or join a book club or a bridge group. Do anything that gets you out of the house regularly and around people.
  3. Enjoy fun and laughter. How often do you have a belly laugh? Find ways to bring laughter into your life!
  4. With many meditations available, you can find something you enjoy and feel good about so your body relaxes and anxious feelings are resolved.
