Healthy Lifestyle

Sadly heart disease is a common cause of deaths, some of which could be prevented by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Don’t smoke (There is no safe level)
  • Take regular exercise (30 minutes 2-3 times a week)
  • Avoid fatty and fried food
  • Keep your weight to normal limits. The practice nurse will tell you what this should be.
  • Limit your alcohol intake (10 pints of beer a week for men, 7 pints for women and not all in one go!)
  • Find ways of avoiding or coping better with stress - relax!

We can offer help and advice with all the above.

Make an appointment to see the practice nurse or doctor.
