According to Northwestern Medicine, keeping your heart healthy during the fall/winter is important. They have put together tips on how you can manage your heart-healthy during the colder months. Here’s how:
- Dress for the weather. Wear layers and especially wear hats, gloves and heavy socks.
- Come inside often. Give yourself breaks to warm up if you’re spending time outside in the cold.
- Avoid excess alcohol. Alcohol can make you feel warmer than you really are and therefore can be particularly dangerous when you’re outside in the cold.
