Gut feeling is fine but we need to protect our hearts. Have a look at these following points of how to look after your heart, the right way:

Listen to your Heart

If you are already a cardiac patient or have an underlying health condition, don’t let this COVID-19 stop you from getting your heart checked. Nothing is worse than ignoring your heart’s signals and warnings. If it’s a regular checkup, talk to the best heart specialist through teleconsultation. If it’s an emergency, always go to the hospital. At Venkataeswara Hospitals, we are COVID safe.

Make better choices for your Heart

Let’s start from this very moment and stop saying a big NO to everything that is making our hearts feel worse. Some of these are:

  • Tobacco
  • Alcohol
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Junk foods
  • Sugar
  • Unnecessary stress
  • Tension
  • Overthinking

Say thank you from your Heart

Last but not least, use your heart to convey and express heartfelt gratitude and thankfulness to all the healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, technicians, researchers, caretakers, etc., for their constant and selfless actions towards the betterment of the world. They are indeed the unsung heroes of this pandemic.

Not only understanding, it is even more important to change our attitude, behavior, and actions to act and build a better life for both us and our hearts.
