This Habit Skyrockets Heart Failure Risk 54%! [WARNING]
Heart disease doesn’t discriminate.
While it’s often associated with men, the reality is that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S.
Now, exercising can reduce your heart risks — but to reap the most benefits, there’s more to it than just taking a 30-minute walk every day.
In fact, this one thing can cut your risk of heart failure in HALF.
Ready for it?
Sit less; move more.
Yes, exercising is good for you. But if you spend 30 minutes walking or doing an activity at the gym — and the rest of the day sitting on the sofa — then you’re still at a MAJOR risk of developing heart problems.
In a recent study, researchers examined the medical records of 81,000 postmenopausal women without heart issues.
They were divided into two groups based on how much time they spent sitting during the day.
Women who sat more than 8.5 hours per day had a 54 percent higher risk of being hospitalized for a heart attack than those who sat less than 4.5 hours per day.
And those who sat for more than 9.5 hours per day had a 42 percent higher risk of a heart attack than women who sat less than 6.5 hours per day!
This study confirms other studies showing the dangers of sitting too much. These studies have linked a sedentary lifestyle with conditions such as
- High blood pressure
- Heart attack
- Premature death
This means that even if you’re highly physically active — like running or playing tennis— you could still face a significantly increased risk of heart problems.
Movement is good. I’m an advocate of getting lots of movement in your day, even if it’s not officially labeled as exercise.
But to get the biggest heart benefits, don’t just think about getting in your 30 minutes of exercise for the day.
Instead, think about spending less time on the couch.
Yes, it’s good to relax, but try to save your wind-down time for the evening right before bed, or for an afternoon siesta.
Just try to limit it to less than 4.5 hours per day.
