Coping With Heart Disease
Heart disease can be genetic, and it might have nothing to do with how you’ve treated your heart throughout your life. One day you might just wake up, and not have a heart that works well anymore. It’ll be really sad, but what’s even worse is when you have done it to yourself. When genetics gives you a great a heart and you destroy it by lousy living, that’s despicable.
That’s why you should start trying to live healthy now. Your heart’s condition can be turned around starting today. Many heart conditions can be reversed through a healthy lifestyle. The only thing keeping people from getting a healthy back is sometimes just the desire to have a healthy heart. Well, let’s talk about how different life can be when a heart is healthy.
When a heart pumps like it should, then oxygenated blood flows through the body at an incredible rate. Oxygenated blood gives your body all kinds of energy. Also, the heart is cleaning the body as it pumps the old blood through. The stronger your heart is, the stronger your whole body is going to be. You will have more energy and you will be happier. When the heart pounds you pound along to the happy song.
So, what is keeping you from getting your heart back on track? I think I might now. It all comes down to desire. If you don’t remember what it’s like to have a healthy heart, then you won’t have the desire to work toward getting one back. I remember when a friend of mine heard that they could completely reverse the condition of their heart. They were really excited at first. They didn’t realize that their condition was fixable.
Over the next couple months their desire waned. Things got hard. I asked them what happened to all that excitement. They told me that the excitement never turned into desire because they couldn’t visualize any different than what they already knew. They couldn’t dream of what their life could be like with a working heart.
Sometimes you have to dream. Sometimes life can be greater than we can imagine without a little bit of dreaming. So, we have to dream it up a little so that we can visualize what we’re working toward. Then, the desire will come. Then, you can get over your heart disease.
Now, I don’t mean to belittle heart disease here. It is a horrible disease, and many people cannot do anything about it. I know that this is a very serious thing. It just saddens me that there are people out there that throw the chance away to have a good heart. The worst is when they don’t even realize what they could have.
So, I hope that I didn’t offend anyone with this. Instead, I hope that someone found this inspiring enough to start dreaming of having a healthy heart. That’s step one. Step two is getting the desire, and set three is working toward having a healthy heart.
