Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems.

Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

Stay active: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders. ...Read more

Talk with someone: I don't know what specific stresses you're facing in your workplace, but it's important that you clarify these for yourself so you can devise options for dealing with them. Discussing all this with someone -- a trusted advisor, good friend, etc could help. Also talking with a psychologist or other psychotherapist could be useful. It's hard to suggest further from the limited info provided. ...Read more

The smaller aorta the more it has to stretch to accomodate the pressure ? thereby more wall stress?need to understand my smaller aorta(14mm) better!

The smaller aorta the more it has to stretch to accomodate the pressure ? thereby more wall stress?need to understand my smaller aorta(14mm) better!

RUTheJollyGreenGiant: No, actually it's the other way around. The bigger it gets the less pressure is necessary to stretch it further. It's called the Law of LaPlace (the guy who figured it out-he reduced it to a mathematical formula).It's a bit more complicated than that, having to do with tissue elasticity, your size, etc.As for your aorta,don't worry too much, as long as you are otherwise healthy and not 8 ft tall. ...Read more

BP is TOO HIGH: Generally the goal for treated blood pressure (BP) is <140/90 so you are a candidate for medical therapy but can you make any life style changes? It is recommended to excercise 30 min./day, eat a diet low in salt/fat, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol. If you snore, sleep apnea may also contribute to high bp. Practice stress reduction with meditation/prayer/etc...Get checked soon. ...Read more
