It’s All About The Heart

Over the weekend my husband really wanted to see his friend from childhood. So we did.

It was great to see the family. It was lovely to have the time to actually chat about things that mean something (meaningful). You know what I mean. Most of the times people ask you how you are and they don’t wait for your answer and are already gone.

So it was lovely for the to be introduced to the whole family. Among all of them I had the privilege to greet their great grand mother who this year celebrated her 100th birthday! They think she is older as the didn’t get a birth certificate in India back in those days. I couldn’t quite get over that. Amazing, don’t you think?

When we chatted the conversation turned to talk about their cousin 37 year old man, good job in the city, full of life, fit, going to the gym regularly and after one morning session he didn’t come to work. He had a heart attack and died straight away! !!! At the age of 37?? What??

Stress and work overload and mental tiredness is no one’s friend.

Even myself the other week, I felt a bit off and thought that’s not me. And my husband said: “ You are fine, all you need is a good quality sleep and enough of it!”

 

So what can you do?

Get plenty of good night sleep.
It’s true in bed by 11, the absolute latest, is a must! So you get 8 hours of rest.
And for you who are night owls ( just like me) could be a challenge to create this new habit! But honestly, make it your priority. You’ll be more productive!

Learn how to relax.
Being mindful when we feel under stress and do a 5 min breathing exercise is very useful. (I love the one Tony Robbins teaches a walking – breathing gratefulness meditation-exercise).
Meditation on a regular basis and practicing yoga daily – even 10 min all adds up and accumulates overtime and that defines someone’s well-ness or ill-ness.

Exercise.
Walking – even though it may not rock your boat is actually highly beneficial for the whole body.
Running, kettle bells exercise…
What ever excites you and you stick to it.

Topping up vitamin & mineral levels.
Magnesium – It helps to keep the blood pressure in the right limits.
and Vitamin D – assists with lowering down the cholesterol.
Pre-biotics – for our gut. If the digestion is not healthy, the whole body suffers.
The Greens – barley grass – the benefits’ list is longer than my arm – it’s good for the digestion, it alkalizes the body, calms the nervous system down….

Bit of cocoa.
Which you find in apples, tea and cocoa.
Cocoa – is the largest source of epicatechin. It has proven to increase the flexibility of arteries, increasing blood flow by as much as 68%.” Says Dr. Richard Wood, the nutritional scientist.

Regular brakes in the nature on the sun!
Going on holiday even shorter breaks will give the body and mind a chance to relax while changing the scene.
My husband and I have recently started planning our bank holiday weekends. I’m super excited!
Plus I can recommend a gorgeous place in Spain.

Have a bike of cocoa.

What are you going to implement to give your heart some loving care and attention?
