Precaution is always better than cure. If Diwali comes with happiness and indulgence, it also brings along a lot many problems for heart patients. Here are some simple tips that will maximize your Diwali enjoyment without having to suffer.
Health Tips for Heart Patients During Diwali: –

You might get swayed away in the festive mood and might end up missing one or two of your important medicines. Avoid doing this. Set alarms in your cell phones that will keep reminding you your medicine time. Taking chances should be the last thing on your mind!
2. Get enough sleep
Your mind and body works a lot more than routine during Diwali. Make sure you give them enough rest to function well. Sleep on time, do not compromise on your sleeping hours. If possible, take a quick nap during the daytime too.
3. A sound free Diwali?
This sounds like an impossible ask, but you can at least request your neighbours to light fireworks that are sound-free. Some of them might understand and oblige, some of them may not. But the chances are that the intensity of the noise will be less. And during the peak time, you can always stay indoors or wear earplugs.
4. Keep a check on your calorie intake
Do not indulge. Don’t eat more than what your body needs, no matter how tempting the food looks. Also, you should always be careful about what you are eating.
