It never has the chance of a rest, it cannot allow that privilege, and that’s even when we put it under great strain and limits that would make its rhythm change , if we dedicate a few minutes a day to caring for our heart, you will see how grateful it is.
Our heart beats around 144.000 times a day, making an amazing 53 million a year, and generally without complaints, knowing it can take on much more and most of the time we don’t even think of our heart and the great job it doe’s for us everyday.
However 2.9% of the adult population suffer heart failure due to heart attacks , but we can take simple steps to maintain those beats being strong and doing so for a long period of time.
Studies show that each time we medicate ourselves without professional advice, we are doing harm to ourselves, but, very much so with the heart,when we have the flu or typical cold symptoms our risk of heart failure goe’s up, due to what we may be taking.
