Early Stroke Avoidance Measures… or at the Very Least Potentially Minimize Long-Term Effects
This is not a medical article and you should seek professional medical people to provide you with their assessment.
Avoid or Minimize a Stroke
These measures below may provide a healthy foundation for someone to help them avoid a stroke or to at least minimize the long-term effects of a stroke.
Beginning with the easy to do items – so no excuses do these now.
Speak with your parents, uncles, aunts and blood relatives and obtain your family health history. It’s not definitive, however, a family history of heart issues, high blood pressure, and/or strokes may be a likely indicator that you may have a higher risk than most people of having a stroke.
Try to get at least 6 ½ to 8 hours sleep every night. This amount of sleep allows enough time for the body to repair itself at the end of each day.
Healthy Eating / Drinking Habits
Establish a healthy eating plan that works for you. At the very least reduce by a lot the amount of sugar and processed foods you eat. Start this by not even having them in your home.
Reduce the amount of alcohol you drink each week. Make sure you drink water each day – at least 64 oz. So at least four 16 oz. bottles if you drink water that way.
Go outside for a walk every single day. Especially if you don’t have an exercise routine. Just do that – take a walk every day for at least thirty minutes to one hour. Get into the yoga or meditation habit. Five, ten or fifteen minutes at least to de-stress each day.
Every one of these tips incorporated into your life will build up a foundation for preventive health. All of these together will be even better. Although there are no guarantees when it comes to our health,
Taking positive steps like these certainly can’t hurt and will only help.
