Hi, my name is Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. Today, what would a cardiologist say to their grandchild.
Well someone did put that to me and I think it's a fascinating opportunity to reflect on what you'd say. I think primarily I'd say life is short and enjoy it to the full. Do the things that make you happy. There's no question depression increases your risk of heart attack. So avoid it. Look for optimism, look for challenges, look for good things.
When it comes to cardiovascular health, know your family. What issues have been problematic in your family? Is it blood pressure is a weight gain? Is it cholesterol? Could be any number of things. But check that out.
I've put together a podcast on what I thought I would say to my grandkids in that space. You might find it interesting. Please click on the link below and have a listen. Otherwise, I'm going to wish you the very best to make the most out of every day. Take care and bye for now.
