Tip 1: Give your heart a break

Cholesterol levels fluctuate significantly with a change in seasons, and during the winters, your cholesterol levels are likely to be higher than normal. If you suffer from borderline high cholesterol, you are at a greater risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases during the winter months. Therefore it is essential that, apart from managing cholesterol levels, you avoid stressing out your heart which bears the brunt of high cholesterol levels.

Tip 2: Slow down

Do not overdo things and avoid exhausting yourself. Give yourself some rest and take frequent breaks so that you do not overstress your heart; even if that means altering your otherwise intense workout regime.

Tip 3: Eat little, frequently

During the winters people end up eating more than they are normally used to. Eating a large meal at one go can put an extra load on your heart. Rather, eat small meals at regular intervals.

Tip 4: Avoid alcohol

Most people tend to drink alcohol in the winters thinking that it will help them stay warm. But, too much alcohol can cause atrial fibrillation and Arrhythmia or irregular heartbeats. If you must drink, do so in moderation.

Tip 5: Be prepared

Keep emergency pills at hand that will help resolve any complaints of breathlessness or chest pain. Pills like sorbitrate help prevent chest pain and act as an emergency pill in the case of a heart attack. But, before you buy the pill make sure you buy and use these pills only after consulting a doctor.

Tip 6: Keep warm

Hypothermia is one of the leading causes of death during the winters and heart failure is most often why a person dies while suffering from the condition. Therefore, keep hypothermia at bay by staying warm. Wear layers of warm clothes, bathe in hot water only and stay indoors as often as possible.

Tip 7: Don’t ignore the signs
Never ignore any discomfort in the chest, severe sweating, shortness of breath and pain in the neck, arms, jaws and shoulders. All these symptoms are indicators of a heart attack, and you must visit a doctor immediately.

Tip 8: Get regular check-ups

If you have any chronic health condition, especially heart disease, regular check-ups are always advisable. It can help pre-empty any serious health conditions at a latent stage making treatment much easier.
