Your Answers: The Worst Heart Disease Advice (Infographic)

Posted on May 14, 2017

We asked and you answered! We posted this question: What bits of "advice" do you wish people would stop telling you? and many of you took the time to respond.

What did we learn? From the unconcerned ("Just stop stressing") to the plain unhelpful ("Try to rest more"), advice is hurled at us from friends, family, coworkers, even strangers. While most suggestions are probably well-intentioned, hearing them over and over can make us feel that our condition is minimized and misunderstood.



Some of the most common answers we heard:

  • Try to relax.
  • But you look fine!
  • Think more positively.
  • Try to rest more.
  • Have you tried exercise?
  • Slow down.
  • Pray more.
  • Eat leafy greens and you'll be fine!
  • Just stop stressing.


Everyone's situation is different and not all of these apply to each person. Tell us: What advice about heart disease do YOU wish people would stop telling you?
