9 ways to show you heart some love

Our heart is a muscle, and it gets strong and healthy if you are leading an active life.

It’s never too late to start a proper workout. You don’t have to be an athlete to do that. It won’t take your time commitment. It can be quite fun and once you get started, you’ll learn that it pays off well. People who don’t care about work out are twice as likely to get a heart disease as people who are active.

Here are 9 simple fitness tips to get your ticker healthy and happy.

Stop Smoking

This nasty habit is one of the most controllable risk factors for heart diseases. Avoid it at the maximum. Initially, you will feel some withdrawal symptoms physically like a headache or irritability but later, it will be easy for you to avoid this habit.

Focus on the Middle

Middle of your body! According to a research in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, carrying too much weight around your waist raises your blood pressure, affects your blood lipids and damages your heart.

Does inversion therapy work here?

The inversion therapy helps us in our weight loss and works with the force of natural gravity. It also helps us in decompressing our spine and reducing our back pain.

Eat Fish

Multiple studies show that adding fish into your diet can reduce the risk of heart disease by a third or more.

LOL (Laugh out loud)

Laughter releases the stress that damages the tissues of blood vessels and helps your blood flow.

Stretch

Yoga is the best practice that can relax you and decrease your stress. According to a research, yoga positively affects the heart rate variability that is an indicator of heart health.

Shun the salt

According to a research, salt is one of the leading culprits that can raise the cardiovascular diseases.  Most of our high salt intake comes from processed and restaurant-prepared food. Think multiple times while having any fast-food item.

Move it, move it, move it

A new study from Australia highlights that sitting for a long time can shorten your life regardless of your body weight. Sitting has also an unhealthy influence on blood fats and blood sugar. If you have long sitting working hours, work in get up breaks and go for a stroll.

Know your numbers
