How To Keep Your Heart Healthy

November 11, 2021

Do you think is it important to keep your heart healthy?  Yes! No!? The heart is the engine of the human body. It is as important as the engine functioning in an automobile.  We are conscious enough to repair and maintain the auto vehicle once in 3 months. You may have your own reason for the vehicle maintenance.  What happens when you mishandle and ignore the vehicle maintenance? The engine loses its power and becomes obsolete.  Like auto engines, the human heart needs maintenance time to function properly for every second of your life span. Your body and mind work together, the heart acts as a bridge in connecting them. Your life stops the day when the heart struggles to function. We people are completely careless in looking after our heart health.  In us, Negligence is greater than Awareness. This is the untold universal truth. You may be one of the common people in mistaking to save your healthy heart.

What happens when you do not care? 

Blood is the fuel to your heart that ignite the pumping for a healthy body. Failing to maintain the blood flow will result in bad heart conditions.  The gradual damage caused in the blood vessels blocks the blood flow to the heart. Your heart needs continuous blood flow to pump the heart. These blocks in the vessels are caused only by you.  Yes!  The food you consume and your habits are the major reason behind the blocks at your heart. Careless makes your life span less. There are some of us who never made complete body checkups. This is not advisable as we are failing to know about our own body health. Everyone is at high risk and we may end up life shorter than we ever thought about it.  Heart care is the most important care that you must look into.  When your heart condition is poor, you will lose the energy to complete your tasks. You feel exhausted physically and you are welcoming new illnesses adding to heart problems.  People suffer from Heart Attacks, where there is some chance of saving your life. But in the case of Cardiac Arrest, you have only 0.1% of saving your life.  Poor Heart Health condition is an alarming situation.  Stay awake and follow the recommendations to keep your healthy heart every time. 

Eat Healthy Foods

Healthy foods keep your heart healthier every day. Food diets are one of the main reasons for heart attacks.   Yes!  The more junk food you consume the more you are at risk of a heart attack. It is wise to choose vegetables that are rich in proteins and other minerals. You should cultivate the practice of food control over your choices. Nowadays it is becoming common for a young person to suffer from heart attacks.  Be cautious on what you eat. 

Stay Active and Do Exercise

Getting up early in the morning and doing physical exercise is tough.  But it gives awesome results in maintaining your body and heart health. Daily exercises not only keep your heart so healthy but also helps you to stay active throughout the entire day. You would have seen people of age more than 50 years old are so active, physically and mentally fit.  This is because of their routine practice of warming up. When you are doing physical exercises, your blood is pumped and the fats in your body are burned, thus you are always fit.  Exercises activate your energy.

Stay at Healthy Weight

Overweight or obese makes you suffer from high chances of heart attacks. Being overweight not only spoils your appeal but also your health. Your food consumption and the food types are the sole reasons for your overweight. It is recommended to maintain the optimum weight. It helps you stay away from other sicknesses. Weight gain is way easier than weight loss.  The time you consume your food is also the reason for your weight. You may have the practice of consuming foods at late night. You should try to avoid these in order to maintain your weight. Obese needs extra care.

Quit Smoking

Smoking accounts for more than 70% of heart attacks.  Yes!  Are you a smoker? Stop it now to live longer.  Smoking affects your lungs and most importantly your heart. The dust from the smoke starts to settle at your blood vessels and thus forming a block. Smokers have a higher chance of suffering from the first mild attack than others. Smoking makes the fat dilution from your body difficult.  Smoking slows down the heartbeat and at the start, you feel like you are relaxing, but the utter truth is you are spoiling your good heart health. Stay away from smoking and live like a king.

Stress Management

The word “stress” itself stress. Every individual is undergoing some form of stress. It is becoming normal and people take it in both ways(positive or negative).  The more stress you have the more you welcome heart-related problems. Stress management helps your mind to be relaxed and it is not easy at the start. But with continuous practice, you will have the best experience in managing your stress.  Do yoga and meditation to manage stress.
