Prioritise your heart health | World heart day 2023 | World DNA
World Heart Day 2023 spotlights the concerning rise of cardiovascular diseases, not just in the elderly but alarmingly among the youth as well. The fast-paced, high-stress lifestyles many of us lead are partly to blame.
Ah, the sins of bad habits! Unhealthy diets and lack of physical activity have become our silent partners in crime, contributing to what’s been dubbed a “silent epidemic.” It’s not just Grandma and Grandpa worrying anymore; even folks in their 20s and 30s are getting affected.
While work pressures and deadlines can be stressful, experts recommend regular preventive health checks. If you’re over 30 and especially if you’re part of the daily grind, an annual or bi-annual check-up could be a lifesaver.
Weekend warriors, beware! Though many people stick to disciplined routines during weekdays, weekend indulgences in binge eating and drinking can derail heart health. And hey, sometimes we’re led astray by our emotions, but that’s no excuse for mistreating our tickers.
A stitch in time saves nine, as they say. Short bursts of regular exercise and daily meditation can make a world of difference. The key takeaway? Small, everyday actions can have a big impact on keeping your heart healthy. So get up, get moving, and show that heart some love!
