A good heart lifestyle – words Alexa Wang
In life, none of us are getting any younger. Some of us have lived amazing lives and still have a lot of life inside us and yet much of how we choose to live is not as conducive to a long life as we may think. A lifestyle that is good for your heart is something doctors and medical experts have been going on about for decades.
Smoking that was once considered good for your health is now frowned up, drinking is only recommended in moderation and most of what we are told do needs to be stress-free or stress-reducing. Life today is stressful, and this is not good for the heart and thus the choices we make need to take this into consideration.
There are two sides to living a good life that supports a healthy heart. The first is considering what we put inside our bodies. A healthy heart diet as part of a healthy lifestyle is not just confined to lettuce leaves and carrots. What we put into our bodies, nutrients, vitamin, and protein can all contribute to good heart health. Many people look to supplement their diet to take better care of their body and supplements such as Hearttonic are focused on helping the heart beat more regularly. The supplement industry is booming worldwide as people begin to understand the benefits of additional minerals and vitamins that are falling away in foods due to modern farming and cooking methods.
Feeding your soul
The second side to a good heart lifestyle is what you put into your soul. There is a massive connection between our emotions and how we feel and having a healthy heart. Stress is the biggest killer in the world today and stress is the underlying cause of more heart attacks than ever before. While eating healthily and supplementing your diet is helpful in staying healthy, making more time for fun and less-stressful things in life are equally so. Work can very easily take over a person’s life, even family can be stressful today and finding something that brings pure joy and peace is the ideal everyone should be seeking.
The fact is, a healthy heart lifestyle does not have to be the stereotypical gyming, jogging, salads and mineral water as seen on TV. A healthy lifestyle is about balance and rhythm to keep you healthy and happy at the same time. You don’t have to stop enjoying your glass of wine or a cold beer if you consider how it can harm your health, especially as you get a little older. For a healthy life, you need to get out there and simply live, tiredness makes us want to become lethargic but getting up and living can vanquish the tiredness and most of us have simply forgotten that. We can all live longer if we put our minds to it and a healthy lifestyle is not so much an intent but an outcome of just living the life you choose to live with good basic decisions along the way.
