Indian Lifestyle Blog: 5 Quick Tips for Healthy Living & Healthy Heart 

Today is my tomorrow. It is up to me to shape it, to take control and seize every opportunity. The power is in the choices I make each day. I eat well, make time for a run and I live well. I shape me. 

I was shocked to know that India has been declared the Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVD) capital of the world. Globally,  it is one of the biggest reasons for deaths. The situation seems quite alarming. 
Every year, 29th September is celebrated as World Heart Day worldwide, in order to spread awareness about multiple heart problems and how to take care of the heart. 

In times when lifestyle induced diseases are on the rise, it becomes important to understand the risk factors and work in the direction to eradicate them especially, if one has a family history of heart diseases. Here are 5 simple and smart ways listed by Ms Anjali Malhotra, Chief Customer Marketing & Digital Officer, Aviva Life insurance to prevent heart problems in today’s busy life.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise!
Covet time for yourself. Any form of physical activity is a must to keep your heart fit and healthy. According to the study, it is said that regular walks can even add up to 2 hours to your life expectancy. You could take a chair instead of the escalator and get up from your office chair every now and then.
Practice these 5 yoga asanas: Virbhadrasana, Tadasana, Utkatasana, Bhujangasana, Vrikshasana that will prevent the heart problems. 

Clean Eating!
Clean Eating is the most important component for healthy living. They say you are what you eat. Eat natural and less processed/junk foods. Try to incorporate the clean foods that earth naturally provides you. 

Say No to Vices
People who smoke and drink regularly have a higher risk of heart problems. It elevates blood pressure and affects the normal functioning of the heart. 

Be Happy
Do not get stressed by everyday chores and while meeting deadlines. The best way to deal with stress is to stay organised and plan things in advance. This will declutter your mind and keep your stress levels in check. Make time for yourself, take that long-awaited vacation and indulge in a hobby. 

Got the Insurance in place?
Financial planning is a really important part in healthcare. Prevention is always better than cure. So, it is best to take necessary measures. Make time and get a comprehensive health insurance plan for yourself that will cover the heart illness and other cardiovascular diseases too. Aviva Heart Care will equip you with the finances to get the best treatment for all kinds of heart conditions and covers 19 heart conditions/procedures from minor ones like angioplasty to major procedures like bypass surgery.
