  4. Regular life: Maintain a regular lifestyle, pay attention to the balance between work and rest, and ensure sufficient sleep. You can consider taking a 30-minute or 1-hour afternoon nap.
  5. Healthy diet: Your diet should be nutritious and light-colored, with more consumption of fish, bean products, and fresh vegetables. Avoid overeating and excessive alcohol consumption.
  6. Quit smoking: Try to avoid smoking as much as possible, as substances such as nicotine in cigarettes can induce coronary artery spasms and exacerbate the condition.
  7. Control blood lipids and blood sugar: If you have abnormal blood lipids or diabetes, actively treat the conditions to control blood lipid and blood sugar levels. At the same time, pay attention to preventing and treating various infectious diseases, as well as constipation, diarrhea, and other issues.
  8. Psychological balance: Focus on maintaining a psychological balance, and try to avoid excessive tension, excitement, anxiety, and depression, and live every day with a calm attitude.
  9. Coronary heart disease patients should follow the doctor’s guidance for treatment and medication, such as enteric-coated aspirin, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, β-adrenergic blockers, etc.

These self-care measures can assist in the treatment of coronary heart disease, reduce the occurrence of symptoms, and improve the quality of life. However, please note that these measures should be carried out under the guidance of a doctor and adjusted according to individual circumstances.
