Top Tips To Protect The Heart Health Of Your Family



 “I am joining the Saffolalife #ProtectHerHeart initiative and pledging my support to better heart health in Association with BlogAdda.”



Marriage is one the most beautiful moment in the life of a person. So I am really grateful that Saffolalife one of the leading brands in India has brought out this #ProtectHerHeart campaign. After taking the Weight-Heart test at www.saffolalife.com. Me and my hubby have come up with some excellent healthy lifestyle practices.

Meditation

Meditate early in the morning and before going to bed. Meditation reduces stress and depression, increases sleep quality, it greatly enhances your thinking capacity and creativity and it helps to bring a balance in your life. So we prioritized meditation in our new healthy lifestyle plan.

Spending time together as a family

Depression can affect the heart health. Singing can be a beautiful routine which can chase the blues away. The husband loves to play guitar. So we decided to sing songs together as a family. The daughter has a beautiful voice and my son knows to play the Casio. So we thought why not we prioritize singing to create a positive and pleasing atmosphere in our home.

Prioritizing an active lifestyle

I am a great fan of walking. But my husband is not so. So we decided to prioritize an active lifestyle. We decided to go to parks than to spend more time in shopping malls. After much prodding the husband agreed to go for walks during the weekends. Something is better than nothing, what do you say?

Follow healthy dietary practices

I did a little research for this post and found that protein rich foods can boost your cardiovascular health. Eating foods that are rich in amino acids can reduce blood pressure and arterial stiffness. Beet juice, which is high in nitrates boosts the power of your heart muscles and help in the pumping action of your heart. We decided to follow a healthy food routine and of course include more protein rich foods and beet juice in our diet.



Take care
