Healthy Habits that Help Your Heart

Heart diseases are rampant and almost everyone above forty years of age is suffering from one or the other form of it. But the genesis of cardiovascular diseases is not abrupt or random. How we eat, and how we lead our everyday lives help these diseases to take shape. Our habits affect our health.

Good health requires careful and regular maintenance. PhilHeart.org has prepared a small list of everyday activities that you can practice to keep your heart at its healthiest.

Exercise regularly

Following a workout regimen or doing activities like walking, swimming, biking, hiking etc. on a regular basis can go a long way in helping to keep the heart healthy. This will not only prevent heart diseases but also help you to remain free of ailments like arthritis and gout. Even doing simple physical things like taking the stairs instead of using the elevator, walking the short distance to your school or place of work can help you fit and spry.

Eat Healthy

Eat plenty and various times throughout the day, but avoid eating too much at once. Try to consume plenty of fruits and vegetables every day. These foods have a lot of natural fiber which help to clean the digestive system. Also, veggies and fruits have plenty of vitamins, iron and proteins which are essential for your body. Eating junk food and fast food is harmful because they contain large amounts of trans fat that clogs the important blood vessels and leads to cardiac arrests.

Stop Smoking

According to research, Smokers who smoked less than 32 pack years but quit up to 15 or more years ago still had higher risks of dying from causes unrelated to cardiovascular health, such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and emphysema .“ Smoking not only does immeasurable harm to our lungs, it also causes damage to our body’s overall immune system making it weaker against any form of disease or illness, including heart diseases. Tobacco is harmful for the body, and if you’re in the habit of smoking you should get some help and quit immediately.

The brain is a muscle just like the heart and it needs to be maintained as well. A great way to give your brain a good work out is to play poker games. These games require planning ahead and quick thinking, so if you want to win you will have to give your best. Casinobanker.org has many games that you can play to sharpen your poker skills.
