Your heart beats more than 100 000 times per day. It keeps your entire body alive and helps support vital functions such as; nutrient and oxygen transportation, toxin elimination, and much more…
But the sad part is that heart disease is still the #1 killer in western world countries.
In order to keep your heart healthy in 2020 and for many years to come, here are small steps that you can incorporate in your daily activities even if you have a very busy schedule.
1. Take a daily 10-minute walk. A brief walk is a great way to help energize your heart and your entire body.
2. Eat one extra vegetable a day. Vegetables are affordable, tasty, and are good for everything from your brain to your bowels.
3. Have a handful of nuts. Walnuts, almonds, cashews, and other nuts are good for your heart. Try grabbing some instead of chips or cookies when you need a snack, adding them to salads for a healthful and tasty crunch, or using them in place of meat in your main dishes.
4. Sample the fruits of the sea. Eat fish or other types of seafood instead of red meat once a week. It’s good for the heart, the brain, and the waistline.
5. Breathe deeply. Breath slowly and deeply for a few minutes a day preferably in nature. It can help you relax and also help lower blood pressure.
6. Gratitude. Taking a moment each day to acknowledge the blessings in your life is one way to start tapping into other positive emotions.
These have been linked with better health and greater well-being.
Remember that what is easy to do for your heart, is also easy not to do!
To your Health,
