At this time of the day, it is highly likely that situations in your daily routine may have your heart beat racing a little. They are little things but they are things that can damage your heart muscle over a period of time, find 10 minutes at lunch time and implement these little changes into your routine.
Two minutes of sunshine can strengthen the heart, giving our body the opportunity to generate Vitamin D, this is always beneficial as it is well-known that a deficient of vitamin D can higher the risk of heart illness and high blood pressure. Sunshine is beneficial in other aspects also for the heart, keeping blood pressure under control, if it is high, your heart will have to work stronger than normal and will suffer. If it is cold outside but the little sun there is can filter through the window, place yourself to feel the benefit of these rays, especially on your arms and legs.
Yoga is also excellent, even when you are still at risk, yoga helps to reduce tension,cholesterol and weight. Holding the position of the tree, will give you strength in the legs and help you to stretch, you will feel calm and feel the power of your body. Take in two deep breaths and repeat.
Take 2 minutes to show your emotions with an image, photographs are wonderful for this, people who are in love will always benefit the heart,remember this can be with your children, grandchildren and of course our pets, when you can look at photographs and feel love, comfort and remember wonderful things you generate positive thoughts, of course the secret here is to remember good things and not fall into a trap of missing people. Choose well and keep them at hand. Cutting yourself of from friends, family,people in general can create a larger risk of heart illness, always try to be happy with your life.
Don’t forget to smell the roses, literally!! it is always good to stop and smell the lovely aromas that nature always has for us, the sense of smell is one of many ways to experiment emotions, emotions that are connected to our heart rhythm. If you are lucky to have a small rose garden or one near by, don’t hesitate in going to smell them, other wise a good suggestion is to buy a small bottle of rose oil. Another good aroma is lemon, it helps to reduce high blood pressure but is not as beneficial as the rose aroma.
Lunch time is a perfect time to give the heart a little push, to keep it perfect for the rest of the day. When you reach the equator of the day give your heart a little break, a little tlc, it will really appreciate it and so will you.
Always stay calm after an upset, the following two hours are very important, this is when you are more likely to have a reaction. Concentrate on your breathing, and do relaxation exercises if necessary. A little siesta is also extremely” hearthealthy” never exceed 30 mins with reduced light and comfort. Your breathing will provide oxygen to your heart muscle, walking at a good pace is good to open the lungs and oxygenate the heart. Enjoy tea and infusions that will help with blood pressure and cholesterol. Make a 10 minute little plan to help your heart everyday.
