Heart beats suddenly spike due to stress, excessive emotions or any modifiable environmental factors. We need to keep heart beating safely and adress all the issues that lead to increased heart rate.

Ways to reduce sudden changes in heart rate include:

*We need to evaluate for fever, throid diseases or any organic disorders . It can be a presenting symptom of any illness.

*If no organic causes are found, We need to practice DBET deep breathing exercise techniques regularly to slow down the rate.

*remaining calm is the key to comfortable cardiac  life style

 *Move for fitness. Going for a walk, ideally away from an urban environment into the sub urban areas or woodlands decreses stress factors to agreater extent.

*Avoid extremes. Having a warm, relaxing bath or shower comforts amuscular stress.

*Many lifestyle habits like staying hydrated, lowering the intake of stimulants like caffeine, nicotine and alcohol can contribute to lower the resting heart rate in the long term.They may also improve a person’s ability to maintain a healthy heart rate during physical activity and stress.

*Heart beats in response to our lifestyle. Simply we need tp avoid a less stressful healty style to have a healthy heart in the long run
