Take a chill pill

According to a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine study, men classified as having the highest level of anger in response to stress were over 3 times more likely to develop premature heart disease than those who reported lower anger responses. They were also over 6 times more likely to have a heart attack by the age of 55. One possible explanation is the correlation between anger and high blood pressure, a condition that commonly develops in highly stressed individuals. So your lesson is simple: Try as much as you can to let unavoidable, everyday stresses roll off your shoulders.
