Managing Stress and Heart Disease

Posted on November 29, 2018

Does your body react to an event or stressful situation? Doctors have long been saying that stress is bad for the heart, but living with heart disease means we need to avoid and manage stress for our health. Diagnosis and treatment can be stressful, as well as family obligations, the frustrating medical system, and work can add more stress, too.

On MyHeartDiseaseTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with heart disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Managing stress is one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about managing stress:
