With all that’s going on in your life, it’s possible you feel stressed far too often. That can be especially true with menopause in the picture. As much as you might want to sweep stress into the corner and try to ignore it, you shouldn’t. Although you can’t see it, stress has a serious negative impact on your heart. To put it bluntly, chronic stress can kill you.
When you’re under stress, it triggers a fight or flight response that includes a flood of chemicals to prepare your body for immediate action. And that’s great if you are in danger and need to respond quickly to an emergency. It’s not so good if the perceived threat is a traffic jam, deadline, or other non-life threatening issue. All that activity puts a strain on your heart which can put you at risk for heart disease.
