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.

Don’t put your heart health on hold. Schedule an appointment with your Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Group cardiologist for personalized advice on how you can start strengthening your heart today!
