Protection is always more difficult than destruction. This is true for your heart health too. Here are a few actions that are wrecking your heart health without you even realizing it. To have a healthy heart and a long healthy life, beware of these habits and fix them!
Sit, Sit and Keep Sitting
It’s so easy to be lazy, right? Travel in your car, sit at your desk all day, travel back, sit at your dining table, then your bed and the day ends! Easy, and very very harmful for your heart and body. Inactive people are twice more likely to develop heart diseases than active people.
How to Fix it?
When one says ‘active’ you might think we want you to go for a morning jog, an evening walk, do yoga, exercises, and all that you dread from. Well, getting ‘active’ takes a lot less than you think. It means getting up from the chair and walking around a little in your office, going for a walk either in the morning or in evening, taking the stairs every time you can, and not being lazy.
Don’t listen to your heart
Have you heard that little voice that rings in your head when you have too much pizza or French fries? That, and the heavy feeling next morning? The way you feel tired even though you didn’t do anything that day? Or how you can’t sit straight for long hours and experience discomfort in your back and shoulders? Well, all these are the voices from your heart. These are signs that you are wrecking your heart and are inviting heart disease. Ignoring these little symptoms will lead you to only one destination: Heart Disease.
How to Fix it?
This is pretty easy. Be Active, don’t be lazy or seated for long hours; eat healthy, avoid fried and junk food; don’t smoke, and last but not the least, listen to your heart!
Beware of these symptoms, change your habits and be healthy!
