Here are some steps you can take.

  • Take it slowly – it is important that after you are discharged from the hospital that you take it easy and gradually build up what you do. You might find that to start with you only have the energy to get out of bed and get dressed, but that is a great place to start. Once you have built up some more strength you can look to do some small house chores such as washing up and making yourself a nice cup of tea. Next, you can progress to walking up and down the stairs as a gentle way to keep yourself active.

  • Wellbeing – as well as taking time with your physical health you also need to take time for your mental health. Having a heart attack can be incredibly frightening and it is important to talk to someone about how you are feeling.
