Managing Stress and High Blood Pressure is one of the most important things you can do to safeguard your health. A number of physical changes occur in your body when you are under extreme stress. Adrenaline and cortisol are released into your blood, which make your heart beat faster while constricting blood flow. The medical term for this is “Situational Stress.” When your stress level decreases, so do these conditions. Periods of chronic stress keep your blood pressure at high levels, increasing the risk of dangers you face from ongoing high blood pressure.
