Stress Management for Stroke Prevention & Recovery
When people are stressed out they often say, “I just can't think right now." That's because stress increases the amount of cortisol produced in the adrenal glands, and raised cortisol levels restrict the flow of oxygen to the brain. It may explain why a lot of strokes happen on Monday's, holidays, and at times when people go through grief or major loss.
Occasional stress is a normal part of life, but when stress becomes chronic, it begins to take a toll on the body.
Take a good look at your life and see where you can adjust it.
Success and happiness will depend on how well one can cope with, or manage, the stress.
