Stress & Relaxation / Fun facts

  • For every 25 pounds of excess weight, your body needs to pump blood through an extra 5,000 miles of blood vessels.
  • How much air do you breathe every hour? You breathe about 700 gallons of air.
  • What is your body's strongest muscle? It's your heart - which beats approximately 100,000 times per day. That means that in just 10 days, your heart beats one million times. If you do sustained, intense exercise daily, you'll reach a million even more quickly.
  • Your heart pumps about 74 gallons of blood in a single day - enough to fill up three gas tanks!
  • A normal sized heart weighs about the same amount as a softball.
  • All but 10 ounces of your brain, which weighs approximately three pounds, is water.
  • It takes 70 muscles to speak a single word.
  • Your body has more than 650 muscles.
  • Blood circulates through your body very quickly. The average time it takes for your blood to make the entire circuit is 23 seconds.
