Manage Stress with Cardiovascular Exercises
Shared by Dr. Antonio Flaquer
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and it’s something we have to make sure we’re maintaining. How can we manage our cardiovascular system and maintain a healthy lifestyle meaning not so stressed? Well, there are many things we can do to make sure our blood is pumping the way we need it to. It’s very important to make sure our heart rate is getting up somehow in a healthy way such as exercise. Exercise is one of the major factors when it comes to mental health and managing your stress levels. For a lot of people it is a way out for them to detach from the “world” if you will. Stress has been inclining ever since covid took place with people losing their jobs or not having to go into work which is more related to physical stress. Whether you’re dealing with mental or physical stress, you need to make sure your cardiovascular system is operating the way it needs to. This not only allows you to live a healthy lifestyle, but it helps maintain your blood levels and blood pressure. Blood pressure also increases when stress is high so that’s something we need to make sure we’re managing with not only exercises, but also meditation and how we are breathing or taking time for ourselves. Most people now a days say they don’t have that time for themselves and come up with some excuse to not take care of themselves and we wonder why the country is so sick? We have to make sure we are not only managing our stress, we need to make sure we are putting the right nutrition into our bodies and make sure we are moving our bodies in some way every day in order to live the life we all deserve to live, pain free. Eat well, move well, think well, and you can live and have the best quality of life you wish to have. Here is some information that talks about the benefits of the cardiovascular system.
“Exercise has also been found to have beneficial effects on the heart. Acutely, exercise increases cardiac output and blood pressure, but individuals adapted to exercise show lower resting heart rate and cardiac hypertrophy.”
