Exercising The Heart

Have you noticed how easy it is to exercise to keep your body in shape, but easily forget the stuff that works continuously to keep your body going?

Many times, we work hard to exercise, look good and stay healthy, but we forget to take care of our dear HEART. The heart is not just seated in your chest doing nothing, it is there to pump blood and fall in love, plus help in other things so it should be exercised too.

Experts recommend doing some form of moderate aerobic activity for at least 150 minutes every week. If you prefer rigorous exercises, 75 minutes/week will do the trick. It is however, the best to spread out these minutes over the week so you don’t get the heart exhausted in the process of trying to keep it healthy.

Interestingly, heart exercises are not too demanding so I will show you some exercises that are good for the health of your heart.  So here are some cost-effective activities you can engage in to keep your heart healthy:

1.     Brisk walking – This can be done at home or in the gym, or when you simply take a walk around your street or neighbourhood.

2.     Running – This will include running on the spot, running up and down the stairs a couple of times. You can also run on a treadmill, run within your area or on a track field if you so please.

3.     Swimming – By swimming I mean taking a couple of laps. If you can't swim, don't try it or simply get someone to be with you or teach you. Swimming is a good alternative for people who cannot run or walk briskly for whatever reason.

4.     Cycling – Got a bicycle? Put it to good use and strengthen your heart. You can also cycle in the gym if you prefer.

5. Hiking: If walking briskly or running is an issue; try hiking. You can just pick a free day then stroll alone away from the house and walk round the street occasionally stopping to admire nature. Hiking is good not only for the heart.
