Cardiovascular diseases: An Introduction

Cardiovascular diseases refer to diseases that affect the heart and the blood vessels. There are different types of cardiovascular diseases found among human beings; however, the common ones are stroke, heart failure, heart attack, heart valve problems, and more.

Why are employees majorly at risk of CVDs? While some of the common reasons for cardiovascular diseases are high blood pressure and increased consumption of alcohol, obesity remains the most prevalent one. Both the urban and rural populations are severely affected by cardiovascular diseases because of the changing lifestyles. However, people living in urban areas are more prone to cardiovascular diseases. In particular, the employees who have a busy schedule and spend hours sitting in front of computers are more likely to have heart problems.

Unhealthy eating, high levels of cholesterol, high blood sugar levels, poor BMI, sedentary lifestyle, and smoking are the major factors that contribute to the increase in cardiovascular diseases among employees. Moreover, age is no longer the bar for cardiovascular diseases, even young employees suffer from complicated heart health. Employees must realise that heart health is as critical as their profession and neglecting it can result in major consequences. Cardiovascular diseases can hinder day to day activities of the diseased.

Workplace Best Practices For Improving Heart Health

While employees are highly productive nowadays, they are not physically active at all. Physical inactivity and the modern lifestyle have contributed to the rise of life-threatening diseases, and cardiovascular diseases are among them. Lifestyle changes are the most critical step in combating cardiovascular diseases.

People must ensure that they are physically active and eating a healthy diet to combat heart health complications. It is never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle, and if you wish to avoid cardiovascular diseases, you must start today.

As the risk of heart disease increases every day, employers have an equal responsibility in improving the heart health of their workers. Stay on top of heart health matters by providing valuable resources, devices and conversations to remind employees of prioritising their cardiovascular health.

Employees who have good cardiovascular health tend to be healthier overall. That means they’re more energised and productive, too. By encouraging heart-healthy activities and lifestyle actions, you set the tone for a better and healthier workplace.
