Do pranayams ( Ram dev baba' s programs come on Astha channel). Do exercise daily and remember running is the best exercise. Eat healthy and balanced diet, don't overeat. In non veg take only fish which is prepared by boilng and not by frying.
And most of all be happy and tension free and enjoy life (be optimistic).

To keep your heart and blood vessels healthy, try to include the following 10 things EVERY DAY:

Get some exercise-enough to breathe deeply for 20 minutes: for example, skip the elevator and climb the stairs; take a walk during lunch; ride your bike to work.

Replace greasy, fried foods and refined carbohydrates (sugar and flour) with a couple of servings of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables.

Add a tablespoon of fiber from oat bran, psyllium seed husks or freshly ground flax seeds.

Add a freshly minced garlic clove to your dinner, OR take two garlic tablets containing a total of 6000 mcg of allicin.
