Our bodies are designed for hearing, speaking, movement and reproduction. We can see, think, reason, create, feel pain and pleasure. We really are a wonder of nature and I doubt if we ever really stop and take the time to think about the complexity of it all.
Each part of our body has its own specific purpose – eyes see, ears hear – and when it is all working at its optimal level, life is good. People come in different packages but on the inside we are all the same. Let’s take a look at what is going on in our bodies.
The heart is…well, the heart of our body. Without the beating functions of this organ we could not survive. The human heart is only about the size of your fist and has a meat-like appearance. It is found nestled and protected in the middle of the chest between the lungs. It is also divided up into four chambers; left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle and right ventricle.
Since the heart is considered a muscle it works hard during our lifetime. It pumps blood throughout our system and generally beats about 100,000 times a day – that’s about 2.5 billion heartbeats over a lifetime. With each beat of the heart, blood is being pushed through all the vessels in the body, which is about 60,000 miles (96,560 kilometers) of them.
