I gave a talk on women's heart disease, focusing on weight loss, diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol. The weight loss section is priceless!

Woman-to-Woman: 12 Fun Ways to Prevent Heart Disease
Drs. Holly Andersen and Jennifer Haythe Take the Stress out of Heart Health

Every minute a woman dies from heart disease in the United States, and more than 90 percent of women in America are at risk, according to the American Heart Association, but prevention can be as easy as a walk in the park.

“With our busy lifestyles, it is easy for women to focus on the obstacles to living a heart-healthy lifestyle, but there are many simple activities we can commit to that will uplift our spirits, decrease stress and improve our overall heart health,” says Dr. Holly Andersen, director of education and outreach at the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. 

Dr. Jennifer Haythe, a cardiologist with a specialty in cardiac care during pregnancy in the Center for Advanced Cardiac Care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center says, “New data is showing that hypertension during pregnancy, gestational diabetes and preeclampsia are risk factors for cardiovascular disease later in a woman’s life.” 

Here are 12 fun ways to live a heart healthy lifestyle, during pregnancy and beyond: 
Shake up your mornings. Make yourself a veggie shake in the morning with ingredients like kale, beets, spinach, and avocado instead of juices that are high in sugars. A diet high in sugars can contribute to hypertension and obesity. 

Laugh out loud.  Laughter just may be the best medicine.  Studies have found that 15 minutes of laughter is as heart healthy as 30 minutes of aerobic activity. 

Take a deep breath.  Slow, deep breathing calms the mind, reduces stress and actually gives you energy. Try a meditation class — 10 to 20 minutes of meditation a day promotes psychological wellness and stress reduction.

Enjoy a piece of chocolate.  Chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is full of antioxidants called flavonoids. Eating small amounts of chocolate regularly has been linked to improved mood, blood pressure, circulation, body weight and a reduction in stroke risk and developing diabetes.
  
Own your break time. Do not wait for time off from your everyday routine to enjoy your life.  Take a little time every day to do something just for you: a walk in the park, a bubble bath, a phone conversation with an old friend, indulging in a favorite magazine or getting a massage.

Turn up the music. Listening to music that you enjoy has been shown to improve circulation and breathing capacity, in addition to your mood. 

Try Yoga. Even if you’re a beginner, yoga can be a great stress reduction tool and it also improves flexibility and circulation. 
Enjoy intimacy.  The human touch can be very uplifting and healing. Sex is healthy, but so is a hug and holding someone’s hand. 

Pregnancy Heart Health:
Know your risk factors. Four percent of women with no pre-existing heart conditions are affected by heart disease during pregnancy. 
Manage your pre-existing health issues. If you are already managing one of the three major risk factors for heart disease — diabetes, hypertension or obesity/overweight — it is critical that you control them throughout your pregnancy. 

Consult a cardiologist. You should consult with an obstetrician and a cardiologist throughout your entire pregnancy if you have heart disease or any symptoms of a cardiac health problem. 

Take a walk. A walking program designed by your obstetrician may be the easiest way to stay fit and heart healthy during throughout your pregnancy.
