5 Ways to Strengthen Your Heart While in Quarantine


Because the situation surrounding COVID-19 is constantly evolving, some information may not be up to date. Stay informed by following information from your local officials and by visiting the CDC website.

When people began quarantining at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, many began adopting unhealthy coping mechanisms. Since going to the gym wasn’t an option, many people became more sedentary. Factor in emotional eating, drinking more alcohol than usual, dealing with additional stress, and spending less time outdoors, and you may quickly realize that this lifestyle can have negative effects on your heart health.

Improving your cardiovascular health doesn’t have to be difficult, though. From being conscious about what and how much you eat to making time to get up and move, we’re sharing some of our favorite tips for strengthening your heart while staying home.
