When Stress hits, Count it to ten

Make it a habit to slowly count to ten the moment you encounter a stressful situation. This slow, ten-second countdown may be just enough to cool you down.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University say that men who respond to stress with anger are three times more likely to be diagnosed with heart disease and five times more likely to have a heart attack before the age of 55. As you count down, take a few deep breaths; this will also help calm your nerves and relieve stress.
