Stress And Heart Disease

Not all stress is bad. Our personality type and whether we have control over our destiny seem to play a role in whether stress motivates or debilitates us. Type A personalities (those who feel “The world is filled with half-brained incompetents whose only purpose is to get in my way”) may benefit from stress management programs.

A recent study from Duke University reported a significant reduction in heart attacks among patients with coronary artery disease who underwent a formal stress management program.

Stress management programs often consist of breathing exercises, stretching exercises, Yoga, meditation, and/or massage.
