Blue Cross And Blue Shield Of North Carolina Suggests Ways To Avoid Stress In Recognition Of American Heart Month

DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- American Heart Month is observed in the month of February and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina offers suggestions to recognize stress. Evidence shows that stress can boost your cholesterol levels. Consequently, stress has been linked to heart attacks and "sudden cardiac death." But before you become stressed over your stress level, listen to these suggestions:

-- First, don't assume that life in the fast lane is necessarily

stressful. Some doctors say that calling a hectic pace "stressful" may

actually cause stress where there is none.

-- Stop worrying about things that don't matter. Pinpoint what's really

important.

-- Vary your routine. Sometimes simple changes in your schedule or

surroundings can eliminate big sources of stress.
