Don’t Take Things to Heart
Stress can occur for anyone at any time. It can be unexpected and people react to it in different ways. Taking the time to de-stress is important for your health. When you are stressed, your blood pressure, heart rate and the stress hormone cortisol rises. These are all contributing factors to heart disease. Learning ways to reduce stress in your daily life is essential for your heart.
Some tips for de-stressing include turning off and tuning out. Try turning off the devices you use to get news and information like the TV, your computer or your cell phone. Leave your work at the office; don’t take the stress of your job home. Staying connected to work 24/7 might be good for business, but its bad news for your heart,
Try to find a way to relax and relieve your stress during the day. Whether it’s playing with the kids, reading a book, going for a walk or meditating, finding time for yourself to do something you love can reduce the stress in your life.
