Heart attacks are three times more likely to occur in the morning, Dr. Oz said on his website. To lessen the risk, he recommends taking most medicines at night, including those for blood pressure and cholesterol, baby aspirin and magnesium. A good night's sleep also can benefit the heart, and getting at least 20 minutes of sun can support a restful night.

Diet — Trim belly fat to reduce heart disease.

"Belly fat squeezes the kidneys, poisons the liver, raises blood pressure, increases inflammation, and blocks the ability of insulin to work," Dr. Oz said, according to Better Homes & Gardens.
