It All Starts With The Heart


Your heart is the center of your body, and is the source for everything that happens in your body. It beats 100,000 times a day to circulate blood and oxygen through you!


When you don't properly care and nurture your heart, the consequences can be serious. Some of these include arrhythmias, coronary artery disease (cad), myocardial infraction or even a heart failure which is when there's too much pressure on one part of our bodies' muscles responsible for pumping blood flow through them- it might get inefficiently pumped around instead! These complications will have lasting affects so taking care of your heart is vital.


The time to be healthy is now! Here are a few tips on how you can take charge of your heart health.

Exercise has been shown to be beneficial in so many ways. One reason why people should exercise is because it not only helps them maintain their weight, but also provides an excellent way for building lean muscle tissue and releasing feel-good hormones such as endorphins!


Exercising is an easy way to keep your heart healthy. When you work up a sweat, the body releases endorphins that help reduce stress and anxiety while also increasing energy levels--all of which can lead not only toward weight loss but also increased fitness!


30 minutes of low to moderately intense aerobic exercise, performed three times per week can improve your cardiovascular health.

Quality Sleep


People who don’t get enough sleep are at higher risk for cardiovascular and coronary heart disease, regardless of age, weight or smoking habits. Quality sleep can help you live a longer life with less stress by boosting your moods while also helping protect against diabetes and high blood pressure.


Lack of rest causes disruptions in underlying health conditions and biological processes like inflammation, glucose metabolism, as well as blood pressure.


During normal sleep, your blood pressure lowers and goes back to homeostasis. Having irregular sleep means that for longer periods of time you're still keeping it higher than usual which can lead to heart disease according to the Center for Disease Control. The best way around this would be by getting enough z's each night so we don't have any trouble with either one!

1. Have a bedtime ritual that signals the body to wind down.


2. Check your sleeping environment for sound, light, and temperature.


3. Stay consistent with a sleep schedule, even on the weekends.
