Do It For Your Heart | World Heart Day 2020

According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. Despite this alarming number most people do little to keep a check on their own hearts.

 

Most people fail to realize that they can take tiny steps every day towards better heart health. Simple things like watching what we eat, portion control, light physical exercise, and de-stressing regularly can take a lot of pressure off our hearts.

Keeping this in mind, Concept Medical is launching a fun digital campaign #DoItForYourHeart on World Heart Day. The campaign aims to create awareness about how we all can do little things in our daily life to keep our heart healthy. The campaign also highlights how easy it is to prevent health issues. More often than not it does not require special effort or excessive spending. All it needs is discipline and genuine care and concern for your heart. 

 We can eat healthy home-cooked food in moderate quantities. We can exercise at home without any gym equipment or go for a walk. We can check our weight and keep maintain our ideal weight when we reach it. Cycling is another fun and healthy way to commute and it also helps the environment. Meditating releases all the built-up stress in the body and leaves us feeling refreshed.  

Concept Medical’s ‘Do it for your heart’ campaign also reminds us how we are willing to put in extra efforts to help others but overlook the basic needs of our own health. We owe our heart atleast this much for beating for us non-stop. Something as effortless as smiling can reduce stress by 52% and just 30 minutes of walking a day can improve your heart’s functioning by 50%. Quitting the addictive habit of smoking has dual benefits – it helps improve our health and protects those around us from the I’ll-effects of passive smoking.
