Your heart is the engine of your body and at such you need to take care of your heart. There are quite a number of ways we can make our heart feel hearty. Surprisingly, our diet planning and lifestyle has a bearing on how healthy or hearty our heart will be. A healthy lifestyle and diet planning will make your heart healthier. On the other hand, an unhealthy lifestyle and diet planning will make your heart unhealthy as well. Once our heart is unhealthy, we are most likely to feel unhealthy in other parts of our body as well. So to prevent unhealthiness, we need to do the needful.
There are a whole lot of different types of heart disease. With the most common being Coronary heart disease. Coronary Heart disease can lead to sudden death from a heart attack. It’s caused by the gradual build-up of fatty deposits on the walls of the arteries in your heart (the coronary arteries) on which blood clots may form. These deposits cause the artery to narrow, and make it harder for it to supply your heart muscle with the oxygen and nutrients which it needs to function normally.
Heart attacks are the most common result of coronary heart disease. Heart attack occurs when the coronary arteries become blocked. This stops blood supply to the heart’s muscles meaning it can’t get the oxygen it needs. Starved of oxygen, the heart can’t pump properly, and in severe cases it may effectively stop beating altogether which can kill.
When your heart can no longer pump blood around your body normally symptoms such as swelling of the ankles and shortness of breath shows up and rhis can affect you for a prolonged time and it often become progressively worse. Although there are drugs that can help limit the impact of heart failure, there isn't a cure at the moment.
Below are Healthy Heart Tips with regards to our diet and lifestyle.
QUIT SMOKING
Yes!!! It is quite possible and very needful to quit smoking if you want to have a healthy heart. It is one of the best things any smoker can do practically.
Medical experts have confirmed that one of the main causes of coronary heart disease is smoking. A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.
Smoking increases the chances of developing cardiovascular diseases – including coronary heart disease and stroke. Smoking damages the lining of your arteries, causes a build up of fatty material (atheroma) which narrows the artery. This can result in angina, a heart attack or a stroke.
When it acts with other factors, it greatly increases risk. Smoking increases blood pressure, decreases exercise tolerance and increases the tendency for blood to clot
You won’t want that to happen to you. Quit before it gets late.
CUT DOWN ON THE ALCOHOL
Most times, smoking and alcohol abuse corelate. Taking more than the recommended quantity of alcohol increases the dangers associated with high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, alcoholism, suicide and accidents.
Due to the calorie content of alcohol, regular drinking can have a noticeable impact on your waistline. This in most cases happens when one takes more than the NHS recommended quantity of alcohol
To minimize the risk of serious health problems relating to your heart, stick to the recommeneded daily alcohol limit.
Note:
• Alcohol can have protective benefits for the heart – but only if you drink within the low risk drinking guidelines.
• It’s not a good idea to start drinking alcohol to protect yourself against heart disease

Should also exercise regularly to keep blood pumping through your veins.. even if its just a 30minutes exercise, it is still beneficial to the body and a time for you to take your mind off your busy schedule.
there are definitely times where you will feel lazy and not want to exercise for the day, but the very first step is to get dress for your exercise, put on your sports shoes and then head to the gym. after heading to the gym, you still don't feel like exercising, then its okay to head back home. the MOST important step is just to step out of your home and comfort zone :clap:
