The heart is the most powerful organ in our body. It controls your daily life of living and your every feeling of emotions. Any imbalance with your heart stops you in your tracks. That’s why I have chosen to vibe about it.
A little heart anatomy.
The main functionality of the heart is to pump blood around the body. Blood carries nutrients and waste products and is vital to life. One of the essential nutrients found in blood is oxygen. The heart beats continuously, pumping the equivalent of more than 14,000 liters of blood every day.
The functionality of your heart solely depends on you. From what you eat and how active you are to what you spiritually and emotionally feed your soul. Your heart beats to the positive connection of your mindset. That’s why it’s important to be mentally strong so that you can protect the most important and vital organ in your body.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Some of the most common heart diseases are caused by an unhealthy lifestyle of not exercising, being overweight, bad eating habits, stress, drugs, and smoking. Over time the development of plaque begins to clog and harden the arteries that lead to signs of heart arrhythmia. A heart attack occurs when a plaque ruptures and forms a clot in the artery causing a complete blockage. Studies have shown that many people survive their first heart attack but this will indicate that a lifestyle change is highly necessary for prevention of a second.
Great tips to keep your heart healthy is to get active. Start walking or light jogging to develop an active lifestyle. Having a balanced nutritional eating lifestyle will contribute to a healthy heart. Getting enough fruits and vegetables and cutting down on the the fatty foods and high salt/sodium will lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.
