Stress can hurt our hearts. That’s why important to learn ways that we can “Chill Out!” Mark Stout of Lexington Medical Center Cardiac Rehabilitation talked about stress management in this “Take 5 for Heart Health” segment on WIS-TV with Dawndy Mercer Plank.
A few important notes from Mark:
~Stress can cause your blood vessels to constrict and become smaller, and ultimately cause a heart attack.
~Realize that everyone has some type of stress in their life. But if you carry it around with you, it can be harmful.
~Identify the stressors in your life.
~Find a way to relax and manage stress: deep breathing, yoga, meditation, listening to soft music or exercise are great examples.
