1. Eat lotus seeds often
Lotus seeds have many health-preserving effects such as nourishing the mind, calming the mind, strengthening the heart, and anti-aging. They are very suitable for consumption in winter. The consumption of about 15 lotus seeds per person is enough. No matter how good the food is, you can't overeat it. If you eat too much at a time, it can't be digested and absorbed, but it will be wasted.
Wash the cored lotus seeds and add them to rice and cook them into rice or porridge, or add them to soups and stew. For example, Sishen Soup, Lotus Seed and Tremella Soup are very healthy daily soups.

2. Keep warm, eat only seventy percent full for each meal
Chinese medicine believes that for myocardial infarction, prevention is better than treatment. First of all, when the temperature changes suddenly, you must pay special attention to keeping your whole body warm, especially wearing a hat, scarf, and gloves-the three treasures of warmth for the elderly.
In terms of diet, eat smaller meals and eat only seventy percent full at each meal. Remember to have low salt, good oil, and low sugar, and eat more foods that are good for the heart and brain.

The so-called nourishment of the heart in Chinese medicine advocates "more sun exposure and more sweat". "Sweat is the fluid of the heart", sweat can excrete the products of human metabolism. Once the middle-aged and elderly people go out for insufficient sun or sweat too little, they are prone to pain everywhere. Participate in outdoor activities on weekdays, do some moderate exercise, and go out to relax with your family or friends can regulate your physical and mental health.

Secondly, it’s best to keep defecating 1-2 times a day. The heart and the small intestine convert each other, and you will often have dry mouth and bitter mouth. If you do not defecate for a day, it is equivalent to the human body accumulating a pack of toxins from cigarettes. Of course, it is not good for cardiovascular health. . So every meal should take in enough good oil to lubricate the intestines, and eat enough fiber to help gastrointestinal peristalsis.

5. Keep a good mood
Being angry is definitely a taboo for middle-aged and elderly people to keep healthy! An angry person has conditions all over, and often feels uncomfortable everywhere, but he can't tell.
When people reach middle age, they have experienced all the big and small things in life, so they should have a moderate promotion and recuperation in order to be respected by younger generations.
