Dr. Rakesh Sood.
When nothing else seemed to work, we knew the least we could be happy. Still, as the pandemic seems to slowly drift away, work-related stress and anxiety stay afloat, overpowering our mental peace. This was said by Dr Rakesh Sood. He is the Senior Consultant, Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, Delhi. He explained that people have unrealistic expectations from life and set impractical targets to achieve them. Thus, as they chase after our goals and dreams to feel happier, instead they feel unhappy . “Labourers don’t suffer from heart attacks. It is usually executives or managers who get a heart attack. Those who are happy, have a regulated lifestyle and enjoy time with their family, their incidence of heart attack is less. Incidence of heart attacks is high in only those who have stressful jobs or Type A personalities,” Dr Sood told .
According to Prannya Arora, who is a final year student at Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, stress caused mostly by demanding jobs. This leads to a series of unhealthy lifestyle practices which sooner or later affects our cardiovascular health.”It is a drop by drop phenomenon, we do a lot of deteriorating things to our body. This deteriorates our health. But lifestyle change will sort out fifty per cent of our problems,” Arora said on the occasionof World Heart Day.
