All of us at some stage in life have experienced the feeling of being famished without reason. The panting and palpitation are common things amongst all urbanites! Basic movements like walking also seem like a lot of activity just because we're not used to it anymore. We laze on our cosy couches, and get things done at the click of a button. The ease and comfort makes us so lazy that moving our joints becomes a tedious task. But just like your car has an engine that needs to be maintained to perform well, your body also has a natural engine called the heart! This fist-sized organ performs an unimaginable job even in the most edgy situations to just keep you alive and going. From pumping blood every second to your organs to filtering the bad blood in your body, it does it all. And we take for granted. Give it some exercise and make its muscles stronger to help it perform its work without stress!
