Human heart, undeniably, is the crucial and hardest working organ amongst all. It is extensively responsible to deliver oxygen and essential nutrients, and pump blood in our body. However, this is only possible when it is completely fit.

Various studies have proved that cardiovascular mortality rates have increased by 50% over the span of 25 years in India. Also, in 2015, more than a quarter of all deaths were due to heart ailments. Evidently, the threat to health due to cardiovascular activities is rapidly increasing. Taking prevention beforehand can help you to have a better lifestyle. Here are some tips that will help you to keep your heart healthy:

Get moving!

Lack of physical activity is directly linked to the occurrence of heart disease. Nothing would be better than having a regular workout routine. When we exercise, our body starts to need more of oxygen and other nutrients. In this case, the heart pumps blood harder and faster. Subsequently, this extra effort lets the heart to become stronger and better.

DO NOT exercise briskly, if you are dealing with issues like high blood pressure or diabetes.

Follow the food rules!

Intake of magnesium-rich food, like spinach, walnuts, and sunflower seeds, is highly recommended. Furthermore, food enriched with omega-3 fatty acids are also a boon for your pumping organ.

Take sound sleep!

With sound sleep comes good health. Doctors advise to take about seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Not only the quantity, but the quality of your sleep should also be good. The heart also needs to have time to strengthen itself. Avoid using phones at least an hour before sleep. It will let you prevent yourself from the harmful rays emitted by mobile phones that eventually diminish the sleep’s quality.

Mind your habits!

Unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking alcohol and intake of tobacco are not only injurious to your liver, but for your heart too. Tobacco and cigarettes consist of harmful chemical compounds that can cause the arteries to shrink. Also, various prominent studies have reported that second-hand smoking leads to approx. 35,000 deaths from coronary diseases every year.

Detect the threat!
