Stress is known to be bad for your health — especially your heart. To minimize stress and maximize a heart-friendly lifestyle, use the following suggestions:
Modify factors that can compound stress. Get enough rest. Don't overconsume caffeine. And so on.
Live in the present. Quit fearing the future or regretting the past. Make the most of today.
Get out of your own way. Don't dwell on the negative or indulge in negative self-talk.
Take time out. Step away from it all for ten minutes a day. Take a stroll. Meditate. Nap. Tune into the calm.
