Planning Retirement Online

Social activities

to improve heart health

Being diagnosed with a heart condition can be a daunting experience leading to anxiety and concern about the forthcoming treatments, and worries about coping with home and family life.

A good support network of colleagues, friends and family can ease your troubles and help you see things in a different way. A problem shared is a problem halved.

 If you don’t connect with people, you won’t have support to turn to when you need help. The activities we do with friends help us relax and we often have a good laugh with them, which is an excellent stress reliever. Talking things through with a friend will also help you find solutions to your problems. 

Physical activity can also be sociable and very important to your recovery and future wellbeing. Please see the AXA PPP Healthcare fitness section. 

There are a number of support groups and organizations that can put you in touch with others experiencing the similar concerns and feelings to you. 

The British Heart Foundation is a well-recognized charity that offers a wealth of information about cardiac conditions, research, campaigns and support to its members.
