HeartMath – Reducing Stress and Creating Better Health

The wear and tear the body experiences in reaction to everyday tensions and pressures, change, illness, injury or career and lifestyle changes, are common causes of stress. However, it’s the emotional pressure and tension we feel in response to the little everyday hassles —rush hour traffic, waiting in line, and too many emails—that do the most damage.

How does stress affect health?

Stress affects people physically, mentally and emotionally. According to the American Institute of Stress, up to 90% of all health problems are related to stress. Too much stress can contribute to and agitate many health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression and sleep disorders.
