National Heart Week: Protecting Your Future

Did you know that recently (7th – 15th) it was National Heart Week? And if anything, this week has shocked us into taking more consideration about our heart and general wellbeing.
There are many factors that can put a strain on your heart; over indulgence, smoking and lack of exercise but to name a few. These factors can lead to many heart problems, which will cut your life short.
So how can you ensure your heart is healthy for the future?
- It may sound obvious but exercise is the key to a healthy heart and healthy body in general. It doesn’t even have to be a chore, go on fun, little walks around your local area with a motivating playlist or take a class at your local gym with friends.
- Eating Your Greens. For someone who’s never once thought about his or her heart’s health, it can be hard to hit your 5-a-day. But why not start with a daily fruit smoothie? Then keep yourself energized with some healthy snacks that are good for the heart such as carrot sticks or sliced apple.
- Drink Water. It’s recommended that you drink 8 glasses of water each day. While it may not be everyone’s first choice of drink, water flushes the body of toxins, can improve the look of your skin and make you feel full to prevent you snacking as often.
- Kicking Habits. We’re all prone to unhealthy behaviour, and we don’t want to be the people who tell you ‘you shouldn’t be smoking’ or ‘that McDonald’s is bad for you’. However, giving up these behaviours can help extend your life; in fact stopping smoking at 35 can add up to 10 years to your life. Giving up cigarettes has tons of other benefits such as giving you younger looking skin, improving your fertility, whiter teeth, fresher breath and prevent heart disease and lung cancer.
While we hope nothing like this should ever affect your family, raised awareness brings it to the forefront of our minds and it’s important to future proof.
