Chhote Kadam for a healthy heart.

India has one of the highest number of heart patients in the world and the number is keeping increasing with time. The main reason behind this increasing number is hectic schedules in the workplace, commuting and sedentary lifestyles due to resulting time crunch. India has a whopping 30 Million heart patients, Of the 30 million heart patients, 14 million reside in urban areas and 16 million in rural areas. Although the ration of urban population to rural population is 1 :2, but when it comes to heart disease the ratio surprisingly becomes 1:2.
So from this very simple ratio we may attribute the heart problems to urban areas than the rural areas. As said earlier the urban life has its own challenges which comes along with the amenities. The open space problem, the green cover problem, the polluted air all add to the problem. Coupled with the hectic schedules and sedentary lifestyles act as the straw that broke the camels back.

So how to overcome these problems for a better & healthy heart ? There are somethings which are under our control and there are some factor which are not. Its our #ChhoteKadam, like  Staying Active, Eating Better and Being Happy.
