Summer Resolutions: Prioritizing Your Health with Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio

You've heard of New Year's resolutions, but at the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio, we believe it's never too late in the year to make a new commitment to your health! Summer is a fantastic time to reassess your wellness goals and get on the right track, whether you're starting fresh or getting back into healthy habits, and we’re here to help guide you on that journey!


It's Never Too Late to Start

Many people find themselves slipping from their health goals due to the busy nature of life, especially during the summer months filled with vacations, barbecues, and social gatherings. However, summer is also the perfect time to reinvigorate your commitment to health, with longer days and more opportunities for outdoor activities.


Overcoming the Overwhelm with Comprehensive, Preventive Care

The idea of embarking on a health journey can be daunting, especially if you’re doing it alone. But you don’t have to! Our dedicated team at the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio is here to guide you every step of the way. We focus on a holistic approach, considering your entire body and lifestyle when creating your personalized treatment plan. Our goal is not just to treat but to prevent heart attacks and strokes. We believe in the power of preventive care and work with you to identify and mitigate risks before they become serious health issues.


Key Factors in Cardiovascular Health

A healthy lifestyle is the cornerstone of preventing cardiovascular disease. Many factors that influence your heart health are not immediately visible, and require expert evaluation. Dr. Goulder, our board-certified cardiologist, and our dedicated team are here to guide you through this process. We will ensure that you receive the appropriate tests, and make informed decisions for your overall well-being.

In the meantime, here are some actionable steps you can take right now to improve your cardiovascular health:

  • Diet: Finding fun and delicious healthy meals to cook with family can make nutrition enjoyable and sustainable. Every month, the BaleDoneen newsletter features a new healthy recipe for you to try at home. Some of their most recent are Monika’s Favorite Green Smoothie, Balsamic Chicken with Figs, and Gingerbread Energy Bites. You can find more of their delicious and nutritious recipes here.

  • Exercise: Everyone’s body is unique, and we take that into account when making exercise recommendations. Not everyone is ready for (or interested in) running a 5k. Our goal is to make exercise enjoyable and accessible, whether that means a brisk walk, swimming, or even a dance class. The key to success is consistency, and finding an activity you look forward to can help you maintain a regular exercise routine.

  • Stress Management: Identifying and tackling stress in your life is key to staying healthy. You can begin by figuring out what's causing stress—whether it's work, relationships, or other aspects of life. Simple and cost-effective strategies like meditation, exercise, and spending time with calming people can greatly improve your mental well-being.

  • Sleep: Quality sleep is vital for your cardiovascular health. It's not just about early wake-up times or bedtime routines—physiological factors like airway issues can affect sleep quality, leading to conditions like sleep-disordered breathing. We partner with Dr. McClatchie at Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus to identify and address sleep disorders, ensuring this crucial aspect of your overall health receives proper attention and care.


Remember, many factors influencing your heart and brain health are not immediately visible and require expert evaluation. Dr. Goulder, our board-certified cardiologist, and our dedicated team are here to guide you. We ensure you receive the appropriate tests and make informed decisions for your overall well-being.
