Stress can ac­tu­ally kill. When you have stress hor­mones like adrenalin, cor­ti­sol and other cat­e­cholamines con­stantly run­ning through your sys­tem, your blood pres­sure and heart rate be­come el­e­vated. Re­search has found that peo­ple who re­turned to a stress­ful job af­ter a heart at­tack were twice as likely to ex­pe­ri­ence a sec­ond at­tack as those who held down rea­son­ably stress-free jobs.

Pa­tients who had stress­ful per­sonal re­la­tion­ships were also found to be a high-risk group. If you find your­self per­pet­u­ally stressed, learn to man­age it. Make time to rest, do ac­tiv­i­ties you en­joy, stop wor­ry­ing about what you can’t con­trol and prac­tise mind re­lax­ation tech­niques like med­i­ta­tion.
