How to keep Heart Disease at bay – the 3-Pronged Mantra

running-exercise

One of the major causes of heart attacks world-wide is Coronary Artery Disease.

Here, a combination of high cholesterol levels and other fats in the blood collects on the inner lining of the heart’s arteries, eventually forming a thick plaque that attracts clotting agents in the blood. Once a clot forms, it’s very difficult for blood to get to the heart. That’s when a heart attack occurs.

For some people, it is a result of genetics or diabetes; but more often than not, it could have been prevented. Even after coronary artery disease has taken hold, health measures can still prevent a heart attack.

The 3-pronged Mantra to good heart health is:

Eat a low-fat, high-fiber Diet 

If you eat less fat, the chances of developing clogged arteries will obviously decrease. If there’s less fat in the body, there’s less fat available to build up on artery walls.

Get regular Exercise

The heart-healthy effects of physical activity has a tremendous effect on the heart, as it lowers blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

30 minutes of aerobic exercise like jogging, swimming, skipping rope or bike riding every day raises your heart rate and can decrease the risk of heart disease by 20 to 60 percent.

You needn’t run marathons to reduce your risk of heart attack. If you just get up and move around more, your heart will be stronger and healthier. Research has shown that overweight people who exercise have a lower risk of heart disease than thin people who don’t.

Avoid Stress

Don’t smoke, train your body and mind to get into a simple routine of relaxation, perhaps like walking or meditating early in the morning.

Listen to music, get a hobby to keep your mind happy. Learn to cope methodically with projects at work, instead of getting overwhelmed.

These simple steps will go a long way in making your life happier!

Is creating #PositiveEnergy in your home all about Superstition?

Indian-interior-design-idea

It’s actually no #hocus-pocus. Sometimes, if you have moved #home and suffer ill-health, accidents, arguments, lose or break things, you probably need to clear it of #negative #energy! In many ways, it has to do with a lot of clutter – in the home and in your mind.

Your home should be your sanctuary where you can feel nurtured, #energized and fulfilled. How do you banish negative vibes from your home and bring in #positive energy? Some tips.

If you take care of these five areas of concern, you are home safe, literally –

Space

Whether your home is large or small make sure it is well organized.

  • #Clean curtains, walls, windows, rugs, etc.
  • Remove #clutter. Get rid of unwanted stuff and toxic products from your environment.
  • Rearrange #furniture. Arrange your space with as much open space as possible.
  • Loud #noises. The Chinese love #fireworks because the noise breaks up negative energy patterns.
  • #Meditate there. You will saturate your living space with uplifting energy.

Lighting

  • Proper #lighting also influences the energy in your home – whether #natural or “full spectrum” light bulbs/ #LED lights.

Air Quality

  • Add #living plants. Plants add color, life, #oxygen and positive energy to your home.
  • Open #windows. This brings in positive energy with the #freshair.
  • Make sure air filters are changed regularly in heating and air conditioning systems, use air purifiers, #plants, #aromatherapy or #incense. Sage, light #floral and #citrus scents work best.
  • Other #space clearing techniques include burning #candles, using herbs as in #potpourri, or #incense; clearing with bells, burning #lavender, #mint or #eucalyptus incense.

Color

  • The major #colors of the #rainbow can also help with positive #vibrations in the home. Each color has unique aspects, so including more of that color in your home can help draw that energy in.
