As one of the most important organs of the body, the heart is surprisingly also one of the most ignored when it comes to being taken care of. Whilst you might think that you do not indulge in activities to harm your heart, a lot of habits that are part of your daily routine could be inconspicuously causing harm to it. Here is looking at what the heart likes and what it doesn’t.

Rest is Vital-Savasana (Corpse Pose) is the best way to get the rest you need. While giving you the rest you deserve, it also helps you relax and frees you from the stress of recovery. The breathing exercise is sure to bring tranquillity to the heart.

Cholesterol-Alternatives such as Canola oil, olive oil, brown rice, barley, multi-grain bread or whole-wheat pasta contain ‘good’ cholesterol and are thus recommended for consumption.

Physical inactivity-Walking, jogging, running, yoga etc can strengthen heart muscle and make arteries flexible.

Stress and depression-Practising yoga and some non-intrusive ayurvedic medicine can help deal with emotional problems and so contribute to keeping your heart healthy!

What you all do to make your hear healthy?
