We are all only given one body. How motivated are you to avoid a stroke, heart attack, or any hospitalization due to a weak and unhealthy heart? Unfortunately, a heart left untended can fail at frighteningly early ages. Take your future, and your health into your own hands starting today.
- Exercise moderately 30 minutes every day to keep your heart strong. Moderate exercise means you will feel an increase in your heartbeat, may experience some sweat, but can hold a conversation during the activity.
- Eat primarily meat, vegetables, fruits, and nuts and oils high in monounsaturated fats to keep your arteries clear. Avoid refined carbohydrates and saturated fats.
- See your doctor yearly to avoid a surprise onset of a heart issue; especially if you have a family history of any heart disorder.
- Reduce stress in your life to protect your heart. Any extra stress reveals itself in your entire body, especially your heart. What areas of stress are prominent in your life: emotional, financial, relational, or work-related?
Remember, you are loved by someone and it’s worth a little extra effort to live longer and healthier for them!
