Where Do You Stand with Heart Health?

By Sandy Schroeder

Tracking heart health is an ongoing process that none of us can ignore. Wherever you are in the age and fitness spectrum, you may notice little signs of loss of power as you slow down to climb steps instead of running up them, or struggle to keep up with your kids as they race through the park.

If your body is flashing small slow-down signals, it may be time to check in with your doctor for an overall physical; an approval of a stepped-up workout that can deliver these benefits, according to HarvardHealth.

  • Boost your stamina
  • Sweeten your mood
  • Help you rest better
  • Reduce your risk of cancer

See Your Chiropractor

At the same time, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find out what wellness really feels like. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic help people of all ages reduce pain, stay well and get fit.

The chiropractic focus on spinal health often proves to be the best way to improve overall health. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve any aches and joint pain that you have and provide a far-reaching sense of well-being with better sleep, more energy, and better alertness.

Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may keep you at your peak as you work on your health and fitness to keep your heart and your whole body in better shape.

Check out these cardio moves from HarvardHealth. Be sure to get your doctor’s approval before you begin, and start gradually.

Step up the intensity - Add steps to your workout and tone leg muscles as you burn calories and boost your cardio fitness.

Walk off with a healthy heart - Just 2 1/2 hours of walking weekly can reduce the risk of heart disease by 20 percent. Start gradually and work your way up.

Hit the water - Treat your joints and your muscles to a soothing dip while the water supplies resistance to exercise your heart. If you have sore knees, shoulders or other joints, you can do exercises for them, too.

Do some fun dancing - Wherever you dance, your heart will benefit. Dance at home with your kids, out with your spouse, or solo in a fast-moving weekly dance session.

Discover kickboxing - Exercise your heart and your whole body as you tone arms and legs with a kickbox routine.

Do short-burst workouts – Switch back and forth from high and low intensity workouts.
