Small Steps for a Healthy Heart #ChhoteKadam

You have to take care of your heart,

and you have to start doing it now,

or it’s going to be late.

-Barbara Allen

Our heart is the most important organ of our body, one can survive with a broken leg, a blind eye, a deaf ear and also with a mental brain but it is difficult to survive with without a healthy heart. As mentioned in the previous blog post, our heart is the switch of our body. I had discussed about the things that you should stop doing for a healthy heart, in this blog article I will share the things that you should start doing in order to make your heart healthy.

Go for a regular Work out

Fitness doesn’t have to be boring, No matter how much you weigh, sitting for long periods of time could shorten your lifespan. Visit the gym regularly, work hard and train yourself everyday to burn calories and get back in shape.


Stretch it out

Yoga can help you improve your balance, flexibility, and strength. It can help you relax and relieve stress. As if that’s not enough, yoga also has potential to improve heart health. According to research published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine, yoga demonstrates potential to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.


Laugh out loud

Don’t just LOL in emails or Facebook posts. Laugh out loud in your daily life. Whether you like watching funny movies or cracking jokes with your friends, laughter may be good for your heart. According to the AHA, research suggests laughing can lower stress hormones, decrease inflammation in your arteries, and raise your levels of high-density lipoprotein (HLD), also known as “good cholesterol.”


Let the music move you

Whether you prefer a rumba beat or two-step tune, dancing makes for a great heart-healthy workout. Like other forms of aerobic exercise, it raises your heart rate and gets your lungs pumping. It also burns up to 200 calories or more per hour.


Eat chocolate

Dark chocolate not only tastes delicious, it also contains heart-healthy flavonoids. These compounds help reduce inflammation and lower your risk of heart disease. Eaten in moderation, dark chocolate — not over sweetened milk chocolate — can actually be good for your heart. The next time you want to indulge your sweet tooth, sink it into a square or two of dark chocolate.


Life is all about those minute pulsations, day in and day out, that keep us breathing, day in and day out. Keep those pulses going live a long and healthy life.
