Your heart is a hard working muscle. If it takes you one minute to read this paragraph, your heart will have accomplished around 72 beats.

Today, it will beat about 100,000 times. During your lifetime, your heart will beat over two billion times.

And you're not alone. Almost all animals have a heart.

Mammals and birds have four chambered hearts like ours, while the heart of a spider is a simple tube.

Interestingly, scientists have discovered that resting pulse correlates to average lifespan. For example, small animals like mice and hummingbirds have rapid heart rates, and may live for only a few months.

The hearts of whales, on the other hand, may beat only a few times per minute. They outlive us by hundreds of years.

To take care of your heart, researchers recommend getting plenty of exercise, adequate sleep, and a healthy diet.

How much exercise do you need? At least 30 minutes a day, or three and a half hours per week.
