Physical Fitness is Necessary for Good Heart Functioning and the General Well-being of Humans
There is a growing need and urge to promote the healthy ways of humans so that they can be fit physically and able to attend to their day-to-day tasks. Health centers and should uphold principles which promote the participation in physical activities. This is because there are several heart related conditions whose occurrence can be attributed to the lack of exercise such as hypertension, high blood pressure etc. Moreover, other heart conditions usually attributed to other underlying conditions like obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and atherosclerosis.
Therefore being a radio presenter and part of promoting the Mater Heart Run, a local event organized by the Mater Hospital in cooperation with various sponsors with the goals of raising funds to sponsor the medical bills of those suffering from heart diseases, I was at the front line not only promoting the event but also creating awareness on the need of a healthier lifestyle which would enable the reduction of the risks of heart diseases.
I had several agendas that I was championing through the press in order to carry out sensitization on the need for a healthier lifestyle. As part of the sensitization, we had a cardiologist visit our studios so that he could shed more light on the issue.
Workouts are the Most Safest and Cheap Ways to prevent and Treat Chronic Diseases
As I interviewed Dr. Smith and let him shared his insight on the impact of exercising to my audience, I too had a lot to learn. He was very straightforward as he articulated the most ignored yet a common-sense advice of the need to be engaged in regular advice to prevent coronary diseases as well as control any impeding one. One of the soundest advice that he gave was that we all need to realize that workouts helps keep the body fit.
They help reduce the amount of cholesterol in our bodies by helping burn excess fats deposits. That means that regular workouts are vital for burning excessive fats. It is common knowledge that excessive cholesterol can result to a number of heart conditions which range from blood pressure as the fats deposits are lined in the blood capillaries thus blocking efficient passage of the blood and thus overworking the heart to exert more pressure to enable regular flow of the blood though the narrowed capillaries, to the worst conditions which may result thereafter such as stroke or worse still a heart attack.
Therefore a broad message to all my listeners was to be ready to embrace regular exercising. It didn’t matter if one decided to engage in aerobics or outdoor activities, but the key was and still is to keep the body active by exercising regularly. You just need to fix some time in your busy schedule, let’s say 15-20 minutes per day for exercising. This can help control the amount of cholesterol, and ensure good blood flow.
Moreover, there are some other diseases which can be brought about by lack of exercising and they too are correlated to heart conditions such as diabetes. Also by attending to regular workouts, the muscles of the heart can be strengthened. Strengthening of heart muscles means that the ability of the heart to pump blood get improved as the capillaries needed to transport the blood too widens hence reducing the risks of heart attacks and high blood pressure.
Although we talked more about physical fitness as well as other ways through which people could reduce the risks of heart diseases such as healthy eating the workout bit helped me resonate with several people of my audience because many called and confirmed to take part in the marathon than they did the others days and thus I was glad to touch the heart of a needy person.
