How Anger Affects Your Heart Health

Last updated 4 years ago

You may recognize that anger increases your heart rate and causes a clear physical reaction, but did you know that angry outbursts may also drive up your risk for heart attack and stroke? Even as you calm down, your anger can affect your health for several hours to follow.

This video explains the connection between anger and heart attack risk, which is caused by the release of adrenaline that occurs when tension is high. If you tend to have angry outbursts, you may benefit from therapeutic breathing exercises or other emergency response techniques to cool off your emotions.
