Stress Less for a Healthy Heart

 

When your body is stressed, it releases the hormone adrenaline, which increases your heart, breathing, and blood pressure rates. A faster heart rate and higher blood pressure make your heart work harder and can weaken artery walls if these symptoms persist over time. In this way, chronic stress may increase your risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death in America.

This week, investigate your stress levels and heart disease risk factors. If you often exhibit Type A behaviors (feeling rushed, impatient, irritated, angry or hostile), focus on reducing the frequency of these behaviors to stay heart healthy!
