When is World Heart Day 2019?

World Heart Day 2019 was celebrated on 29th September.

Seeing the seriousness and impact of heart diseases on people and their loved ones, here are some promises we can make to live a heart-healthy life. Some changes we all could get started with, to reduce the risk and improve our quality of living:

Promise To Our Family

Promise your family that you will look after your eating habits and exercising regularly and inspire them to do the same.

  • Promise To Our Children

Parents mean the world to their children and it is important that you project an ideal lifestyle onto them. Promise your children that you will be there for them and help them develop an exercise regimen at an early age. The active upbringing will lead to a hearty life, keeping them in shape.

  • Promise To Our Spouse

Your relationship with your spouse is probably the longest relationship you will have. Spend it the right way by promising to put a stop to unhealthy habits i.e., irregular sleep patterns and unruly meal timings.

  • Promise To Our Friends

Promise your friends a better lifestyle. Inspire your friends to adopt healthy living habits by cutting out bad habits like smoking and drinking.

  • Promise As A Professional

Stress is a given, when working. Adopt a healthy diet to keep your cholesterol and blood sugar levels in check, and encourage them to do the same. Quit bad habits such as smoking and get them to quit too.

  • Promise As A Policy Maker

As policy makers, we understand the gravity of heart diseases and we make a promise to all our customers to support policies that promote healthy hearts. Aegon life iTerm Plus is one of our term insurance plans that provides critical illness benefit.

World Heart Day is an opportunity to raise awareness for heart diseases and get people to change their way of living – living longer and better lives.
