In the hustle bustle of daily existence, we often tend to overlook the needs of our heart and do things that may damage our heart in the long run. Here are a few things that you might be doing too!
As easy as it may sound, research has proven that sitting for long hours can increase chances of heart attack and stroke, even if you exercise regularly. When we sit for hours on an end, the lack of movement in our body may affect blood levels of fats and sugars.
Snoring for most of us is nothing but a minor annoyance. But seldom do we notice that it can be a sign of something more serious and dangerous: obstructive sleep apnea. It can be marked by breathing that is interrupted during sleep and can cause your blood pressure to rise alarmingly. If you have noticed this problem with yourself or your spouse, consult your doctor today.
We often stop taking our medicines once we think we are ‘fine’ without even consulting our doctors. But it is important to know that our body undergoes more than it shows on the outside and if we skip medicines, it can be dangerous in the long run and then, the effects would be irreversible.
Ignoring physical symptoms
It is common for us to blame our lack of physical stamina on ‘being tired. We often ignore the symptoms that our body is trying to show us before it’s too late. If you were once able to run three flights up the stairs and now you just feel ‘tired’ to do so, it is time to notice the changes in your body and take care!
Our body doesn’t demand much from us, only that we observe and listen to it when it tries to show us any symptoms of being unhealthy.
