Simple Ways to Improve Your Heart Rate
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is an incredibly important part of life, and there is a simple piece of data that can be very useful in determining how healthy you are. Many physical fitness experts suggest that you measure your heart beat every morning and keep track of changes over time. Sometimes, you can even predict an oncoming illness with a 1 or 2 bpm (beats per minute) increase.
On average, a healthy adult should have a heart rate of 60 – 100 beats per minute. Clocking in above 100 bpm is called Tachycardia and having less than 60 bpm is called Bradycardia. Keep in mind that this is just an average. If you want to get involved with monitoring your heart beat, look up the chart and find what you should shoot for in your specific age range. Also, be on the lookout for an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia.
There are a lot of things that can affect your heart rate. These can range from physical exercise and sleeping to illness, stress, anxiety, drugs, or even ingesting. A healthy heart should respond to all of these activities, but your average rate is determined by your age and physical condition. A strong healthy heart should beat slower and more efficiently, which will wear it out less leading to a longer life.
If you think your heart could do with some improvements to its rate, there are a lot of things you can do. The primary method to improve your bpm is daily exercise. Working out directly strengthens your cardiovascular health. This will also help maintain a healthy weight, which is the second most important requirement for a healthy heart. Being overweight or obese means your heart needs to work a lot harder to get oxygen and nutrients to all those extra cells, so losing some spare weight is a great way to slow your heart beat down.
Additionally, managing your stress is very important for a healthy heart rate. Stress and anxiety are major causes of heart disease. They increase your heart beat and can cause hypertension. Be sure to eliminate as much as you can in your work and home. Also, make sure you speak with your doctor about how any medications you are taking can be negatively affecting your heart.
A major part of a healthy life is a healthy heart. Perhaps more than any other part of your body, your heart is what will lead you to a long life.
