Modern Life Takes a Toll on Our Hearts

An expert describes antidotes to the heart-damaging lifestyle of today's stress-filled world.

What is the most important thing we can do for our hearts?

Remember that you are love -- and be love. When you become love, you stimulate hormones that lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate, and reduce levels of stress hormones like cortisol.

How can a person be love?

Instead of looking to give love, just be love: Do something good for someone. The feeling you get when you see their face light up brings joy to your heart. Be grateful for your life and have gratitude for the gifts you have been given.
