A healthy lifestyle will make your heart healthier. Here are some factors you can apply in your routine to look after your heart.
Stretch it out: Regular exercise makes you more limber and helps you relax, and also combats stress. Recent research indicates that regular exercise, running and elliptical machine workous have positive effects on the body, and is important for a healthy heart.
Be a kid: Exercise doesnÃ•t have to be so boring. So plan to go out for playing golf, skating or swimming and you can burn an average of 600 calories that helps you get in shape.
Just move it: A study found that sitting for long periods of time could decrease your life and put you at increased risk for heart disease. It seems that being a couch potato has lasting harmful effects on the body. At your work areas or at home, always work in breaks during your day.
Make time for breakfast: One shouldn't skip the first meal of the day. Have healthy breakfast like whole grains, low-fat protein, low-fat dairy products and fruits and vegetables in your diet.
Give-up smokingÃ‘no ifs and or buts: This foul habit is one of the top risk factors for heart problems. I recommend quitting this addiction to make a huge difference in your health, and to save your heart.
Sip a healthy cup: Green or black tea makes immense positive effects on health. Studies that focus on black and green tea effects show that consumption of tea can improve health.
Say cheese: Not only on social platforms, but really laughing is good for your heart. Research shows that laughing helps relieve the stress that affects the tissue that creates the blood vessels and helps increase your blood flow. It also promotes the strong functionality of blood vessels. A good smile does more than keep your pearly whites gleaming. It supports your overall health. Researchers suggest that diseases including cardiovascular, coronary and artery diseases may be connected to our oral health.
Walk it off: Next time you feel overwhelmed or feel sad just take a five-minute walk. That will do wonders for you and clear your head. It will also lower your stress level.
Let the melody move you: Whether it is during elliptical machine workouts or any kind of exercise that gets your body moving, use music. Enjoy it. Dancing is another great exercise with music. It raises heart rate, burns approximately 150 to 300 calories an hour, and lasts heart-healthy effects. Be aware of your numbers: Always keep a record of your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and pulse rate. Regular checking of these things is important for a healthy heart. Learn about ideal levels, consult with your doctor and never skip your regular checkups and physical examinations.
