Stress is the way we all react to change. It includes our mental, emotional, and physical responses to the pressures of everyday life. Because change is a natural and normal part of life, everyone has some stress.
But stress can be bad for your heart. If you have heart disease, stress can lead to angina symptoms and maybe a heart attack.
Taking steps to manage stress can improve your health and life.
No single method of "stress-busting" works for everyone. You may need to try several methods to find one that works for you. You may need to combine a few methods to get the best results.
