The Saffolalife, a not-for-profit initiative by Marico Limited, has always championed the cause of heart health with a vision to create a ‘Heart Healthy India’.

In line with its objective to raise awareness and bring effective change on this important subject, Saffolalife has launched the #CareForHerHeart campaign that specifically addresses women.

It aims to bring to the fore the ‘unseen stress’ that women go through as they assume the role of a superhero in their daily lives. Stress that is not good for the heart.

Saffolalife is a non-profit entity whose vision is to create a Heart Healthy India. This year Saffolalife has partnered with AC Nielsen & SRL Labs to bring out a study that reveals how the seemingly small lifestyle habits that you take for granted everyday can impact the health of your heart.

Here are five powerful tips to manage stress and also keep your heart healthy!

  • Handle situations rationally – Identify the triggers that shoot your stress-o-meter. It could be anything at home, office, work, or relationship. Keep a positive attitude and respond assertively to all situations. Prioritize tasks if your list seems endless. You can also try breaking down your tasks in small steps to manage your time better!
  • Quit smoking – Regular smoking is the worst you can do for your lungs and heart..
  • Exercise regularly – spare some time for exercising. It will keep you active and remove the toxins accumulated in your body, allowing your heart to stay calm and pump blood smoothly. Try at least 30-45 minutes of brisk walk or physical activity of moderate intensity at least 5 days a week. Being fit is good for your heart because it strengthens the muscles needed to make your heart and cardiovascular system function.
  • Pen down what’s on your mind– Sadness, anger, loss, anxiety, any emotion that triggers stress should be written down somewhere to organize thoughts and take a step back to resolve issues. Maintaining a daily personal journal can be a great idea to manage stress & also organize your schedule.
  • Quick fixes – some instant stress busters are drinking enough water, laughing out loud, talking to a friend, meditating for a few minutes with closed eyes, listening to music and doodling on your notebook.
