Ever feel like life has become somewhat of a pressure cooker or a series of one thing after the other? ...::Does any of this banter sound familiar ?....::: "My kids are driving me crazy!! ... My Mother- in- law drives me nuts! .....:: "So-and-So makes my blood boil!" ……"I am .so mad I could spit nails!! ...My Co-worker is getting on my last nerve !" ."My spouse knows how to push my buttons and get my dander up all at the same time!! ..." I feel like I could blow a cork !"..." If one more thing happens I am going to scream !"..." I don't know how much more I can take!"
Ever been there?
.. Most likely saying any of these things one time or occasionally with a negative reaction might not cause obvious harm, or none of us would be here LOL ! ..:: but practice these over a lifetime and see what can happen! … For health's sake, let's all take a deep breath and put a lid on our emotions !

Blowing the lid can start with simmering but quickly escalate to a full boil.
As anger rises so does blood pressure!
Arteries constrict putting a major squeeze on the main arteries to our heart and our brain! ::
As blood flow decreases to the brain we do not think as clearly.
Have you ever wondered what people were doing BEFORE a heart attack or stroke ?
Not likely they will be asked when admitted to the hospital.
We know that Strength training is an important part of fitness-but why not include our mind so we are prepared to deal with the things that possibly "get our goat, make our blood boil, and push our buttons? ..
On that, have a peaceful day and thanks for stopping by! …
