The heart is one of the strongest muscles in the body, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be taken care of. As our luxuries grow, so do our problems. For many developed countries, heart condition is one of the main causes of death with 17.3 million deaths reported by the Global Heart Federation every year. Many factors affect the heart such as too much stress, wrong diet, diabetes, smoking, high total cholesterol, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, depression, obesity, social isolation and a lack of quality social support.

Whenever we feel like life is becoming too hectic, we give ourselves a little break by taking a nap or just relaxing. But our body is working 24/7 to provide us with the perfect health.

Furthermore, women are generally conditioned to have a nice slim body, but many do not realize that not everyone can achieve that since they were not built that way. Thus, by dieting and exercise, they may get the waistline they want, but they don’t know how disastrous it can be in terms of their overall health.
