[LIFESTYLE] Heart Disease Prevention

How to prevent from getting a heart disease
Did you know that 1 out of 2 Malaysian adults are suffering from high cholesterol? And to make it worst, 42% of Malaysians who have high cholesterol are below the ages of 40 years old. Im 24 this year and it has been confirmed that individuals as young as in their 20s are diagnosed with heart disease. And if you go deeper, cardiovascular disease is usually responsible for one-quarter of hospital deaths.

That’s pretty insane since im considered under the category, thus the reason why im here to spread the awareness by sharing you on ways on how to take care of the heart. I think it’s a big concern that the number of deaths due to heart diseases has increased over the years and I believe that there are ways to prevent heart diseases.

Being Malaysian, I think we all know that we are guilty of having sinful Malaysian delicacies such as Nasi Lemak, Oily Roti Canai, Pisang Goreng, and many more of our mamak dishes that’s usually available around the clock. These are unhealthy habits that we Malaysian have unnoticeably adopted since its always conveniently available almost in any part of the country. Another reason why the statistical numbers of heart diseases are increasing is because we are slowly adapting to a busier lifestyle, which generally leads us to lack of exercise.

Going for a regular jog in KLCC park
If you know me, I think you would know how hectic my lifestyle can be. Especially when im traveling, studying, working and blogging all at one go. Despite being busy all year round, I still take the initiative to get my heart pumping every once in a while (even with a busy schedule). My little secret is simple. You can actually consider doing 10-minute exercises twice a week before heading off to bed, or sign up for marathons.


By going for marathons,  I think it helps me challenge myself to constantly exercise to prevent injuries during the big race. But at the same time, it also helps my heart to stay in good shape. You can start with shorter distances if you're a first timer, otherwise you can also opt to go for long walks in the park after work. Reducing on your cholesterol intake and replacing some of the amounts with fruits and vegies would also help too! So, in my case, instead of snacking on fast food, I would snack on fruits instead.


Heart health care should begin early, so its best that we prevent it than before looking for a cure instead. Just remind yourself to keep a balance diet, practice physical activities and go for regular medical check ups. Alternatively, consuming Nestle Omega Plus milk helps too! It contains sterols that can help lower cholesterol, making it a great drink to drink for those who are always on the go.


So I guess that’s about it! If you have your personal ways of how you manage your heart health, please do leave your suggestions below so that we can all prevent and share tips on how to prevent getting a heart disease together. I would love to know more about how you keep your cholesterol levels low and your heart in good shape. I hope this blog post helps, and stay tuned for my next blog post xx

  7. I agree, we all tend to eat a lot of overly rich food... Malaysia is definitely a haven for food and BAD for us if we do not know how to eat in moderation and cut down on all those rich food...

  8. We put so much stress on ourselves that the heart is one of the first organs to give away. This is a not-so-gentle reminder of why we should take better care of our heart. I need to move my butt to exercise consistently.
