One thing I really do not like is when I lay down at night and I hear my heart pounding - no matter what position I am in.
As we get older, this becomes more noticeable, and as we gain weight, or our blood pressure rises, it seems to also increase the sound.
About two months ago, I became more diligent in my daily workout, and I have found that it helps tremendously with this pounding heart noise.
Another benefit - a few more pounds have been shed.
Sitting at the computer all day makes it all the more important to get exercising.
A bit of prevention goes a long way!
