With it being February and all, we figured you might be thinking about Valentine’s Day. Will this be your first Valentine’s Day with a romantic date? Or will you spend it at home alone, binge-watching your latest TV obsession and devouring candy hearts?
Whether you’re in a relationship with Netflix or a long-term partner, there are always extra ways to give a little bit of love. This Valentine’s Day, why not show your heart how much you care?
Why Is Love Thought To Be From The Heart?
The heart has always been considered the carrier of human emotion–but why?
In Ancient Egypt, the heart was regarded as the keeper for personality, soul and emotions. Egyptians even believed that an individual’s heart would be weighed on their Judgement Day.
Today, we know the brain to be in charge of most human functions, but the Egyptians weren’t totally off base. Humans cannot feel anything moving inside of their skull. Instead, when emotions are triggered, our brain spits out messages to the nervous system.
Depending on the messages received, our heart may speed up or slow down. This sensation can be felt by humans, and therefore, feelings of love, excitement, and even heartbreak are still considered to be centered in the heart.
Protecting Your Heart With Water
Emotions can be elating or debilitating, but one thing is for sure: feeling emotions means you’re alive! Those ‘feelings’ coming from your heart are actually signs of good health. But processing these feelings is quite a burden on any human heart. We need to protect our hearts as much as we can. Let’s show them some love!
Did you know that one of the best ways to keep a healthy heart is to drink water? It’s true! In fact, water can reduce your risk of a heart disease or heart attack, as evidenced in a study conducted by Dr. Jacqueline Chan.
The study focused on the fluid intake of over 8,000 males and over 12,000 females, and examined tests on the increase of plain, clean drinking water versus the increase of fluid intake in general (water, coffee, tea, etc). Throughout the course of 8 years, those individuals who stuck to only increasing their water intake reduced their heart risks by a whopping 59%! Those who consumed a variety of beverages saw little to no improvement.
So this Valentine’s Day, drink up! Your heart will love it!
