The term heart disease' is very much familiar to us which in other term is also known as 'cardiovascular disease.'

The cardiovascular disease leads to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other than it, the disease also affects your heart's muscle, valves, and rhythm.

But, with the change in your lifestyle, you can make a huge difference in improving your health. Previous research has shown that a sedentary lifestyle in a long run can shorten life but taking breaks to move around may counteract the risk, especially if it helps you burn more than 770-kilo calories (kcal) a day.

The study in annual Canadian Cardiovascular Congress (CCC) in Toronto, presented the investigation in which 132 patients with coronary artery disease enrolled their name and helps the researchers to know how many breaks, and for what duration, are needed by Heart patients to expend 770 kcal.

In the research, the average age taken was 63 years and 77 per cent of the participants were the male.

All the participants wore an armband activity monitor for an average of 22 hours a day for five days.

The activity monitor recorded the amount of energy spent during breaks from inactivity, the amount of inactive time, and the number and duration of breaks during each sedentary hour.

As per the result here are the tips by Ailar Ramadi from the University of Alberta in Canada that every heart patient should follow to have a prolonged life:
