Heart Health


In Celelbration of all things love hearts this month we thought it was a good opportunity to talk about our heart health….

The best way to look after your heart is a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE…

Here are a few pointers which we found on the Heart Foundation website…

  • Be smoke free

  • Manage your cholesterol levels

  • Manage your blood pressure

  • Manage diabetes

  • Be physically Active

  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight

  • Eat a variety of nutritious foods

  • Look after your mental health

The thing with looking after your heart is that all of these above things are directly related to the foods you eat and the lifestyle that you live, in which all of the above can be managed and reversed by a good healthy balanced diet!

Don’t forget, its beneficial to also know how your heart works so you can have more gratitude or being alive and able to function so its important to look after your heart. Here is a short TED Education lesson on how you heart actually pumps blood https://youtu.be/ruM4Xxhx32U
