Lack of sleep, stress, sedentary lifestyle, skipping meals and belly fat are key lifestyle habits that show up in those at heart risk

Key findings of the study:
People with Stress show the highest incidence of heart risk amongst all the other lifestyle factors
71% of Mumbaikars who sleep less than 7.5 hours a day are at heart risk
62% of people between 30-40 years of age are at heart risk while this number goes up to 79% amongst older adults of 41-55 years of age
Exhibiting one or more of these lifestyle behaviours, Men show higher incidence of heart risk at 74% v/s Women at 69%


MUMBAI, SEPTEMBER 25, 2019, (GNI) : This World Heart Day, Saffolalife through its flagship study talks about commonly ignored lifestyle habits and their high correlation to heart health risk. Even more eye-opening is the lack of awareness of the impact of these habits on heart health.

The key finding that emerges from the study is that 71% Mumbaikars who exhibit one or more of these behaviours like lack of sleep, stress, sedentary lifestyle, skipping meals and belly fat, are at heart risk.

While India is moving towards health consciousness, heart health awareness is still not as prevalent. The small habits and behaviours in our lifestyle that we tend to ignore a lot of times are factors that silently put our hearts at risk. Although we are aware about markers like high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes etc., we are often not aware of the impact of the seemingly small lifestyle behaviours which are within our control. Understanding the impact of these underlying habits is key to better heart health awareness and care.

Therefore, to create greater awareness regarding these lifestyle habits that lead to heart risk, Saffolalifecommissioned a survey which was conducted by Nielsen covering 1226 respondents across key cities of Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad. Some of the startling facts from the study revolve around the growing incidence of heart risk amongst those who are stressed or get inadequate sleep.

The Saffolalife study also revealed interesting pegs across geographies and demographics:

Amongst all the three cities and considering people who exhibit one or more of these lifestyle behaviours, Mumbaikars show the highest incidence of heart risk followed by Delhiites and then Hyderabadis And in Mumbai 63% of people aged 30-40 yrs. who sleep less than 7.5 hours are at heart risk, this number increases to 79% in the age group of 41-55 years Across the three cities, while 57% of people aged 30-40 years who are stressed are at heart risk, this number increases to 71% in the age group of 41-55 years
90% of all males and 91% of females who sleep less than 7.5 hours and are at heart risk, do not even consider sleep as a heart risk factor 90% of males and 94% of females who do not exercise and are at heart risk, do not even consider it as a heart risk factor, Commenting on the findings of the study, Dr. C. K. Ponde said, “Lifestyle diseases are definitely a growing concern amongst the medical fraternity and Heart Disease has emerged as one of the most serious of these in the last few years. However most people do not understand how these small lifestyle behaviours can impact their heart. This study states that 90% of people who sleep less than 7.5 hours a day and are at heart risk, do not even consider sleep as a critical risk factor. Such basic lifestyle habits that we ignore today can lead to much bigger issues. This study is a wake-up call for us to start considering proactive understanding of heart health as a key factor while ensuring overall body health.”

On leading a heart healthy lifestyle, Nutritionist Niti Deasi said, “Lifestyle plays such an important role in our overall body health, yet it’s the factor that most are unaware of. The Saffolalife study shows a strong correlation between your lifestyle and heart health risk. Every individual can start making small but significant changes in their lifestyle by not ignoring these small habits and making a positive change in their lifestyles. This is easily done by eating right, avoiding junk food, exercising regularly, sleeping well and reducing stress.”

In today’s age, hectic work schedules and sedentary lifestyles are affecting the heart health of Indians. While there are multiple causes that leads to an increased heart risk, it is important to be aware about these small factors and make lifestyle changes to be more heart healthy. Thus, this year on World Heart Day, Saffolalife study is aimed at driving awareness of the impact of small habits that we fail to acknowledge, on the health of our hearts.
