Use this activity as an introduction to a study on taking care of your heart.
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” – Proverbs 4:23


  1. As the youth arrive at the meeting, ask them to calculate their heart rate. (Each youth must find his/her pulse on a wrist and count the number of heartbeats in a 60-second time period.)
  2. Next, instruct youth to walk quickly around the room for about two minutes.
  3. When two minutes have passed, the youth must take their pulse again and compare the difference between the two heart rates.



  1. What do you think is a healthy heart rate?
  2. Why is it important to have a healthy heart?
  3. How do you know if a heart is healthy or not?
  4. What are some of the signs that something is wrong with your heart?
  5. How should we respond to heart problems?
  6. What would you do if you had heart problems?
  7. How do you take care of your heart?
