Be nice to the heart.
It’s so easy to forget about the heart during happy times. It’s just beating away, doing its thing. But when we are scared or nervous or even must climb up a couple flights of stairs this guy lets us know, “hey- you are alive, and I am working hard to keep it that way”
In the last blog we talked about how chronic stress and even a single traumatic event can negatively impact that heart. But there are so many things we can do to support the heart.
3. Stay Active- It is recommended by the heart and stroke foundation that you accumulate 150 minutes of activity a week. This can be done in as little as 10-minute intervals. Exercise will keep your heart happy and strong. Today’s blog video is ANOTHER 15 min cardio workout. This time we take it up a bit so get ready to sweat.
It can seem overwhelming to fit all this into your regular routine. An area I really struggle with is proper nutrition. So, I have also included some heart healthy recipes below to help with that respect. Burrito Bowls and Chili are great because you can make a huge batch and have leftovers for ever! Bonne Appetit.
