Keep Your Heart Beating
Most of us don’t notice what our heart is doing until there’s something wrong with it. But how your heart is beating at any given time is finely tuned by a variety of different controls. These controls sense how hard you’re exercising, whether you’re stressed or in danger, and how much blood is moving through your system. They keep your heart beating at a rate that matches what your body needs, which allows you to run for the bus without having to stop half way to catch your breath.
