Promoting Heart Health
Elements Massage Central Scottsdale Sep 21, 2016
Attaining better health is on most of our “to-do” lists. What better place to start tackling this task than our hearts? A healthy cardiovascular system is essential to bodily wellness. Now is the best time to start preventing heart disease and other cardiovascular issues. Here are a few steps that you can take today to promote heart health:
We’ve heard it before, but it’s true: nourishing the body with healthy food allows essential nutrients to reach our hearts. A low-glycemic, preservative-free, high-fiber, and antioxidant-rich diet helps prevent inflammation of the body’s blood vessels and can help us to function at our best!
No Butts About It
Smoking can destroy bodily health by interfering with heart function, causing structural damage, hurting blood vessels, raising blood pressure to dangerous levels, and harming nearly every other organ in the body. Leave this pesky habit at the door to better heart health!
Routine exercise is one of the best things that we can do for our bodies and minds. It gets our hearts pumping and promotes the production of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins—which make us feel good!
Receiving regular massage therapy is a great way to connect the mind and body. Additionally, it can impact our hearts by reducing stress on the nervous system and enabling the circulatory system to work more effectively. Of course, we don’t need an excuse to pamper ourselves!
