World Heart Day : Simple tips to keep your heart healthy – Jammu Voice

New Delhi: Heart powers our entire body and its necessary for us to do small things and show our heart a little love.

The things that we do to keep your heart healthy will also make us less likely to develop various health problems such as diabetes, cancer, etc.

Here are a few simple things you can do to keep your heart healthy and happy :

Physical activity

Regular, moderate physical activity is great for your heart health and for maintaining your weight. It’s never too late to start exercising and reap the benefits of having an active body.

World Heart Day, which is observed on September 29 each year, aims to encourage people to reduce their risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including heart attack and stroke.

Eat healthy food

Consume a variety of fruit and vegetables, mainly focussing on fibre to help lower your risk of heart disease. Wholemeal bread, bran, oats and wholegrain cereals, are rich in fibre.

Gorging on junk and other processed foods that are loaded with unhealthy fats, salt and sugar over nutrient and fibre rich foods can lead to obesity, which is one major factor behind heart disease.

Keep your gadgets away

The blue light emitted from the screens of your phones, laptops may render you susceptible to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Research suggests that the blue light at night reduces drowsiness and affects sleep, increasing the risk of depression, diabetes as well as cardiovascular problems.

Don’t overwork

Try to avoid working overtime as this can hurt you in the long run. Studies have shown that working for more than 8 hours increases your risk of heart stroke by 33%. Moreover, people who spend more time in their office are less likely to exercise or get enough sleep, thereby increasing their risk of developing heart disease.

Exposure to loud music

Loud noise, including that of automobiles, may affect your heart health. Listening to loud music can make the heart beat faster and blood pressure go up, while slower tempos produce the opposite. Try tuning in to pleasing, soft music once in a while to relieve stress.
