What can I do at home to prevent another heart attack?

ANSWER

Reducing stress can help prevent a heart attack and aid recovery. Find a technique that works for you, like meditation, biofeedback, or yoga.

People with a positive attitude about recovery tend to do much better. You may find that a particular mind/body technique helps you to focus on positive thoughts. Sharing thoughts and emotions with a support group may help, too.

Stay in touch with friends and family. Research shows that people with lots of social support have better recovery.
