                 Get some exercise
It is important to keep as active as possible but build up your activities slowly. By being inactive you will gradually feel weaker and less able to do things. Many people with heart failure have said that they actually feel better when they exercise regularly. Try walking, cycling, bowling, golfing, dancing, or join a keep-fit class.
Make sure that you always feel like you would be able to
talk while you’re exercising. If, during the exercise, you feel like you’d have difficulty talking and you are getting very breathless, you need to slow down a bit. Feel free to ask your Nurse for more advice on appropriate exercise and referral to the Heart Failure Exercise group.
