Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredAn active lifestyle is one of the keys to a stronger heart. Even moderate exercise can help get your blood pressure -- and your weight -- under control. It also keeps the blood flowing through your arteries. Just half an hour of moderate exercise a day can help you lose weight and lower high blood pressure. Physical exercise is a great stress buster and antidepressant, so get up off the couch, and start moving!
National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredImproving the health and function of your heart is easy to accomplish by engaging in regular bouts of moderate to vigorous exercise such as brisk walks, climbing stairs, going for a hike or a bike ride. Even activities like cleaning the house, mowing the lawn, washing the car can improve the health of your heart. Being as active as you can, as often as you can, will improve your health, and especially the health of your heart.
