The close relationship between stressful emotions and heart disease has been recognized since antiquity. In fact, the ancient Greeks and other early cultures believed that the heart, rather than the brain, was the seat of emotions. We still describe people as being broken hearted following some severely stressful event, such as the loss of a loved one. People who are generous have a heart of gold, or are good hearted, while heart of stone and cold hearted describe opposite temperaments. Being brave is to be stout hearted, and if you are timid, you are faint of heart. The heart was viewed as being the essence of life. And, if you want to get at the heart of anything from an argument or an apple, you go to its core, which comes from cor, the Latin word for heart.
One of the problems in studying the relationship between stressful emotions and the heart, is the difficulty scientists have in defining stress, much less being able to measure it accurately.
After all, exactly what is stress?
it had been used in physics for hundreds of years, the term as it is
commonly used today, was essentially coined only 60 years ago, by Hans
Selye, a brilliant Canadian researcher.
A 1983 cover story in TIME magazine referred to stress as The Epidemic of the Eighties, and numerous surveys have shown that the problem has progressively worsened since then. Its difficult to get through the day without reading or hearing something about stress.
Why all the sudden fuss?
After all, stress has been around since Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden. Is it because there is much more stress today? Is it because the nature of contemporary stress is somehow different, and more dangerous? Or is it because scientific research has increasingly confirmed the important influence of stress in numerous diseases, and uncovered the mechanics of actions responsible for its diverse effects on physical and mental health? All of these are undoubtedly ingredients. It is estimated that 75-80 percent of all visits to primary care physicians in the U.S. are for stress related complaints, and it is difficult to think of any illness ranging from the common cold to cancer, in which stress could not play a contributory role.
The major source of stress for adults stems from workplace pressures. Four out of five American workers describe their jobs as being very stressful, and the World Health Organization recently declared that job stress has now become a worldwide epidemic.
Some people use it to describe an unpleasant circumstance, like loosing your job, while others view stress to refer to the way such challenges make you feel (anger, fear, depression), symptoms you experience (angina, palpitations, stomach pain, diarrhea, headache), or even illnesses that seem to result from this (heart attack, stroke, ulcer). Stress is also very different for each of us.
stress signifies different things
are very distressful for one individual may be pleasurable for another,
or have little signficance either way.
But up front are the wide-eyed, exhilarated thrill seekers, yelling, and relishing every steep plunge, who actually race to get on the very next ride! And in between you may find a few with an air of indifference or nonchalance that seems to border on boredom. So, was the roller coaster stressful? Obviously, its different strokes for different folks.
coaster ride is a useful analogy for several reasons. What distinguished
the passengers in the back from those in the front was the sense of
control they perceived over the event. While neither group had any more
or less control, their perceptions and expectations were quite different.
Thus, although you cant define stress objectively, all of our
animal and human research confirms that the sense or feeling of being
out of control is always distressful.
what stress is all about.
Its often how we perceive them. As with the roller coaster, we often create our own stress because of faulty perceptions, and thats something you can learn to correct. You can teach people to move from the back of the roller coaster to the front, and nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
of you have pro-bably read or heard about the harmful effects of emotional
stress on the cardiovascular system, and physicians frequently warn their
heart patients to be careful to avoid or reduce this as much as possible.
I would like to explain why this is so important, and how you can learn to minimize stress related damage.
