Good Morning Readers!
Here’s just another little something to show us just how wrong the nay-sayers are when it comes to the mind-body connection. Watching stressful movies changes your endothelial function in negative ways whereas watching comedies helped vascular function.
What is endothelial function and why is it important? The endothelium is the innermost lining of the blood vessels in your body. Smooth ones are good. So are slick ones and unclogged ones. Everything we do and eat changes the internal environment of that lining. Get some vasoconstriction, some plaques to roughen things up and make blood cells stick to the lining, and some thinning of the lining and you have a perfect storm for heart attacks and strokes.
Keeping your endothelium happy is the best thing you can do for your physical health. So the next time you have a stressful day, go home, dial up a comedy on your TV and enjoy.
It will do your heart a lot of good. As does positive thinking and caring for your spiritual well being. Knee time also helps.
To Your Excellent Health!
