The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body, responsible for pumping blood and ensuring that oxygen and nutrients are delivered to every part of the body. When your heart is working properly, you may not even realize it - but there are some signs that you can look out for that indicate your heart is functioning as it should be.
Steady Resting Heart Rate:
According to Healthline, A healthy heart will typically have a resting heart rate between 60 and 100 beats per minute (BPM). If your resting heart rate falls within this range, it is a good indication that your heart is working properly. To check your resting heart rate, simply count the number of beats in one minute while you are at rest. If your heart rate is consistently above or below this range, it may be a sign of an underlying heart condition.
Good Blood Pressure:
Blood pressure is another key indicator of heart health. A healthy blood pressure reading is typically around 120/80 mmHg. If your blood pressure is consistently higher than this, it may be a sign that your heart is working too hard to pump blood around your body. High blood pressure can put you at risk of heart disease and other serious health conditions.
Good circulation is also a sign of a healthy heart. You can check your circulation by examining the color of your skin, particularly in your extremities such as your hands and feet. If your skin is a healthy pink color and your fingertips and toes are warm to the touch, it is a sign that your heart is pumping blood effectively to all parts of your body.
Your breathing is closely linked to your heart health. When your heart is functioning properly, you should be able to breathe easily and without discomfort. If you experience shortness of breath, wheezing or chest pain when you breathe, it may be a sign of a heart condition.
Normal Energy Levels:
Finally, a healthy heart should give you plenty of energy to carry out your daily activities. If you find that you are easily fatigued or struggle to complete simple tasks without feeling exhausted, it may be a sign that your heart is not working properly.
In conclusion, there are several signs that indicate your heart is working properly. These include a steady resting heart rate, healthy blood pressure, good circulation, normal breathing, and normal energy levels. If you experience any symptoms that suggest your heart is not functioning as it should, it is important to seek medical attention to diagnose and treat any underlying heart conditions. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise, a balanced diet, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also help to keep your heart healthy and functioning properly.
