How To Lower Your Heart Rate


A lower heart rate allows the heart to maintain
a healthful rhythm and respond to routine stressors efficiently. These may include exercise, illness, and day-to-day
activities. Having a relatively low heart rate is a significant
contribution to overall health. An abnormally high heart rate can lead to
a variety of health risks and conditions. In this video we will share our top tips for
lowering your heart rate. At number 1 is Exercise. The easiest and most effective way to achieve
a lasting lower heart rate is to do regular exercise. At number 2 Stay hydrated. When the body is dehydrated, the heart has
to work harder to stabilize blood flow. Throughout the day, drink plenty of sugar-
and caffeine-free beverages, such as water and herbal tea. At number 3 Limit intake of stimulants, such
as caffeine and nicotine. Stimulants can cause dehydration, increasing
the heart’s workload. At number 4 Limit alcohol intake. Most forms of alcohol dehydrate the body. Alcohol is also a toxin, and the body must
work harder to process and remove it. At number 5 Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Eating a varied diet rich in fruits, vegetables,
lean proteins, nuts, and legumes can help to improve the health of the heart, as well
as overall health. Foods and supplements rich in antioxidants
and healthy fats can lower blood pressure and make it easier for the heart to pump. At number 6 Get enough sleep. A chronic lack of sleep puts stress on the
whole body, including the heart. Most adults should get between 7 and 9 hours
of sleep a night. At number 7. Maintain a healthy body weight: Extra weight
also puts stress on the body and heart. At number 8. Reduce or resolve sources of substantial long-term
stress: Stress caused by work, caring for a loved one, or financial burdens all cause
the heart and the rest of the body to work harder, to maintain a normal rhythm and flow. At number 9 Seek counseling or psychological
services. Traumatic experiences, grief, and certain
mental health conditions stress the body and can impact brain chemistry, making it harder
for people to cope with everyday activities and stressors. At number 10. Get outdoors. Research shows that people who spend more
time in nature, even by taking a short walk in the woods or a park, tend to be happier
and less stressed than people who do not. And at number 11 Practice relaxation techniques. Activities that increase self-awareness and
mindfulness, such as meditation and guided visualization, can help to reduce stress when
practiced routinely. So that sums up our tips for lowering your
heart rate, we hope you found it informative. If you did please leave a like and if you’re
