2A, Ba, Ka, Da, E, Ga, Ha…

Naaalala niyo pa ba ang una ninyong pagbigkas sa alpabeto? Ngayong Pebrero, ipinagdiriwang natin ang Buwan ng mga Puso na may temang: “Gulay at prutas araw-arawin, matamis, mamantika, maalat, hinay-hinayin!” Samahan niyo kami sa pangangalaga at pagpapanatili ng malusog na puso sa saliw ng mga pantig ng alpabeto.

A – Alak at sigarilyo ay iwasan. Kabilang ang mga ito sa mga sanhi ng pagkakaroon ng atake sa puso.

Ba – Balansehin ang trabaho at sarili. Siguraduhin may oras sa pamilya, kaibigan at sariling kalusugan. Huwag hayaang madalas mapagod sa subsubang pagtatrabaho.

Ka – Kabilang sa mga nararapat kainin ay ang mayaman sa omega-3 fatty acids na mga isda tulad ng sardines, salmon at tuna na sinasabing mabuti para sa puso.

Da – Dahan-dahan sa pamimili ng mga pagkain. Tiyaking sariwa at hindi pa lumalagpas sa expiration date.

E – Ehersisyo na pumapatak sa trenta minutos hanggang isang oras ay bigyang-diin sa pang-araw-araw na gawain. Tumutulong ang pag-eehersisyo upang lumakas ang puso at magampanan nang maayos ang mga tungkulin tulad ng pagbomba ng dugo para sa suplay ng buong katawan.
