‘Tis the Season … For Heart Attacks


Recommended Posts

The American Heart Association offers a few tips for keeping your heart healthy during the holidays.

According to the American Heart Association, scientific research over time has shown an uptick in cardiac events during the winter holiday season, and more people die from heart attacks between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 than at any other time of the year.

The American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, has tips and resources to help you and yours have a happy, healthy holiday season.

“The holidays are a busy, often stressful, time for most of us,” said Donald Lloyd-Jones, volunteer president of the American Heart Association and Eileen M. Foell professor of heart research at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. “Routines are disrupted; we may tend to eat and drink more and exercise and relax less. We also may not be listening to our bodies or paying attention to warning signs, thinking it can wait until after the new year. All of these can be contributors to increasing the risk for heart attack at this time of the year.

“This may be even more likely for many people who didn’t get to be with family and friends last year due to COVID-19 restrictions. It’s incredibly important to be aware of these risks. Take a few simple steps that can help keep you heart healthy with much to celebrate in the new year.”

Here are some things to be mindful of (a list the American Heart Association recommends checking twice):

  • Know the symptoms and take action.

  • Celebrate in moderation. ‘Tis the season for unhealthy changes in diet and higher alcohol consumption. Eating healthfully during the holidays doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself; there are still ways to

    from family interactions, strained finances, hectic schedules and other stressors that tack on this time of year, including traveling.
  • Keep moving. The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week, and this number usually drops during the holiday buzz. Get creative with ways to stay active, even if it’s going for a family walk or another fun activity you can do with your loved ones.   
  • Stick to your meds. Busy holidays can make way for skipping medications, forgetting them when away from home or not getting refills in a timely manner. Here is a

      link hidden, please login to viewSummer is the main season for “cone zones,” road construction where you will likely hit a bump or two, or come across loose stones and other hazards. These rough road conditions can be tough on a vehicle’s steering and suspension system and can throw out the alignment, while loose stones have the potential to damage the vehicle’s exterior or windshield, according to the non-profit Car Care Council. “Even the most careful motorist, who is driving slowly and carefully through road construction, is bound to hit an unexpected bump or other road hazards,” said Nathan Perrine, executive director, Car Care Council. “Be sure to pay attention to your car and if you think there’s a problem, have it taken care of as soon as possible.”
      The main symptoms of steering and suspension or wheel alignment problems are uneven tire wear, pulling to one side, noise and vibration while cornering or loss of control. The council recommends that motorists have their vehicles checked out immediately if any of these symptoms exist, as steering and suspension systems are key safety-related components and largely determine the car’s ride and handling. Regardless of road conditions, these systems should be checked annually and a wheel alignment should be performed at the same time.
      Motorists also should do frequent visual checks of their vehicle’s exterior and windshield to identify any chips, dings or cracks. These are small problems that can become costly repairs and safety hazards if they aren’t taken care of immediately.
