How does stress affect your heart?
It is not entirely understood how stress contributes to heart disease. However, it may have an influence on behaviors and factors that are known to cause heart disease, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, smoking, physical inactivity, overeating, or overconsuming alcohol.
We can’t necessarily get rid of the stressors in our life, but we can do the following to manage stress healthfully. • Snacking is a common stress reliever so make sure you have healthy snacks close at hand when you are in high-stress environments. • Laughing has been shown to reduce stress hormones, increase blood flow and oxygen intake, and soothe tension. So, go ahead and watch those funny cat YouTube videos once in a while!
• Taking a walk during the workday may seem counterintuitive when you have a lot on your plate, yet walking can clear the mind and has health benefits!
