Today, the World Heart Federation unites people from all countries and backgrounds in the fight against cardiovascular disease and inspires heart-healthy living across the world.
By 2035, 45% of people will have at least one cardiovascular disease. High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors for CVD. It’s called the ‘silent killer’ because it usually
has no warning signs or symptoms, and many peoplem don’t realise they have it.
Here’s some tips to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle:
❤️️ Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity 5 times a week.
❤️️ Playing, walking, housework, dancing –
they all count!
❤️️ Be more active every day – take the stairs,
walk or cycle instead of driving
❤️️ Stay fit at home – even if you’re on lockdown
you can join virtual exercise classes and
workouts for the whole family
❤️️ Download an exercise app or use a pedometer
to keep track of your progress
