28 daysTips for Healthy Living: Don't Stressed your Heart out!
We know stress can take a toll on our lives and that limiting stress is important for long-term health, but how does stress affect our bodies, and most importantly what can we do about it?
A lot, a ctually, but first things first.
How Stress Affects Us
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, long-term activation of your body’s stress response system, along with prolonged exposure to cortisol and other stress hormones, can put you at risk for:
Headaches and migraines
Heart disease and high blood pressure
Stomach issues such as diarrhea, vomiting or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
During stress, as part of the fight or flight response, the body responds with elevated blood pressure in order to increase and redistribute energy, and also activates the immune system. However, prolonged stress over time forces the heart to work harder, which can lead to hypertrophy and adversely suppress immunity, digestion, sleep and reproductive systems.
Sudden emotional stress, such as the death of a child, has also been linked to an unusual type of heart attack, called “takotsubo cardiomyopathy,” where the heart takes on a different shape. The two primary triggers of this condition are: physical ones (such as an infection) or an emotional type of “shock.” Because of the latter cause, many have labeled takotsubo cardiomyopathy “broken heart syndrome.”
A recent study presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions conference found that stress from traumatic events as well as long-term stress at home and work led to a nearly 200% higher risk of new Type 2 diabetes cases in older women. Diabetes, a disease in which the body doesn’t regulate blood sugar properly, can lead to a host of health problems, including heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.

2 months9 Ways to Lift Your Spirits During the Holidays
The stereotype of the holidays is that they are supposed to be filled with happiness, enjoying quality time spent with friends and loved ones, indulging in delicious food and giving and receiving lots of great gifts. In reality, it can be a stressful or unhappy time for many. If you happen to be experiencing some of the holiday blues or are feeling a bit stressed about this time of year, here are some ways you can lift your spirits during the holidays.
1. Give the gift of your time – Giving to others can be an effective way to feel happy, and giving of your time and/or skills can be the most rewarding. You might, for example, volunteer at a soup kitchen, drop off food at a local food bank or send care packages to soldiers in the military. If you love animals, volunteer at the animal shelter or donate food.
2. Participate in a toy drive – Participate in one of the toys for children programs available in your area. This is a great way to help a child who is underprivileged or whose family is struggling financially receive a holiday gift or gifts.
3. Treat a good friend to a meal – Take someone whose company you enjoy out to lunch or dinner—especially if you haven’t seen them in a while. You’ll not only feel good about treating them to a meal, but you’ll get the added joy of having fun and spending quality time with a friend.
4. Get plenty of rest – Too many of us let our day-to-day lives get in the way of our sleep. It can be even more of a challenge during the holidays. Making sure you get an adequate amount of quality sleep can make a huge difference in improving or maintaining your mood.
5. Visit the elderly – Check with a local nursing home to see if it would be okay to give each resident a token holiday-themed gift or baked treat. If you’re allowed to, personally deliver each gift and visit with any residents who seem like they could use a little bit of social time. They’ll be happy to have a visitor, and you’ll feel good about helping make someone’s day a little brighter.
6. Get physical – Follow an exercise video, go for a walk or run, ride a stationary bike or clean the house from top to bottom. Physical activity releases feel-good endorphins that will brighten your mood and reinvigorate you.
7. Take a yoga class and/or meditate – Practicing yoga can be a great low-impact way to increase your flexibility, increase muscle strength and tone and improve your breathing, but it can also have significant benefits in reducing stress and improving your mental well-being. Taking time to meditate can also help reduce stress by making you clear your head, concentrate on your breathing and focus on being present.
8. Make a list of people and things you are thankful for – Write down the names of people you are grateful to have in your life and all things you are thankful for. By focusing on your blessings, you can put yourself in a position to appreciate and enjoy what you have, helping you feel more fulfilled.
9. Learn something new – Pick a subject that you know very little about or a skill you would like to have and start researching. You could learn a new software program, learn to play an instrument, practice basic carpentry, fix minor issues on your car, take dance lessons, learn to knit…the list is endless. You can even learn many things for free on YouTube. Learning keeps your mind sharp, boosts your mood and gives you a sense of accomplishment. ... Read more
