One of the biggest and most over-arching ways to combat issues with cardiac health is to de-stress. Stress is a killer, as they say, and it could not be truer. Because stress impacts so many things in your daily life that contribute to your overall health, including that of your heart, staying calm is one of the best ways to ensure your own longevity.
High blood pressure also results from a prevalence of stress, and with high blood pressure comes a strained cardiac system, so it’s best to take your golden years as they are – the time to relax.
Some ways to stay calm are to engage in your favourite hobbies or self-care treatments – schedule them throughout your day! And of course, being in nature is one of the best ways to relax. Our minds are immediately calmed by natural environments, which is what makes the picturesque views from Parewaitai Village so beneficial.
