We always get to hear that a healthy heart and mind is the key to a heathy life. Our heart is not just a pumping organ it plays a huge role on our overall well-being. But, amidst all the crazy work life and stress we usually miss the sounds of our heart. Only today, I got to know that matters of the heart are a great concern in India. People my age are falling prey to this illness. World Health Organization announced that incidences of heart disease has increased by 32%, in less than 40 years age between 2010-2015, and that 2.6 million Indians will be afflicted with heart ailments by 2020. While we are all trying to win in this crazy life and trying to build our future, we should not forget the present and work towards a healthy life with a healthy heart. So with this post, I share with you small steps which you can follow to keep your heart healthy.

1: Eat Balanced Diet
With endless eating options available it is difficult to tame our taste buds. But it is essential to eat a balanced diet and include an adequate amount of nutrients in our diet. So ditch that pack of wafers and go for a fruit in your snack time. Here we need to understand that a proper meal with whole grains, dietery fibers and minerals is included in our diet. It helps keep our system clean and metabolism in check and purify blood efficiently.

2: Excercise
Exercising is a need of the hour. All you need to do is a brisk walk for 20-30 min or may be aerobics. Sweating is good for health as it helps remove toxins from the body. If you are one busy person who is a workaholic like me then small changes in your lifestyle like taking stairs instead of the lift, stretching at your desk, moving from your desk in every 30-40 min etc will help you stay healthy.

3: Say no to Alcohol and smoking
