Exercise is vital to your overall well being! But when it comes to heart disease, exercise alone just isn't enough to get the job done! There are many documented cases of people who are in tiptop physical condition. But they neglect other key risk factors like high cholesterol and plaque on the arteries. In the end they develop life-threatening coronary problems just like anyone else!
The American Psychological Association recently published their Stress in America™ survey. This annual survey was conducted from August 4th to the 29th of 2014 and included 3,068 adults ages 18 and older. It found that 75 percent of Americans experienced at least one symptom of stress in the past month. Twenty-five percent of those surveyed said stress has a' very strong' or 'strong' impact on their physical or mental health. That is a stunning number! Causes of stress include finances, work, family concerns and health issues. Whatever the concern, studies have shown that stress can negatively affect your health! It is common for stress to lead to sleep deprivation, headaches, anxiety and depression, and the long-term effects of stress can go much further than that
