Dahil “Election Day” na sa Pilipinas bukas, May 13, magiging aligaga ang maraming botante sa kung sino ang kanilang iboboto.
Pero ayon kay Dr. Kris Vijay, cardiologist and medical director at the Institute for Congestive Heart Failure at Abrazo Community Health Network, may tinatawag na “election day stress” na nakaka-damage sa kahit sino – physically and mentally.
“Election can cause extreme stress. This fear can actually lead to all kinds of different neurohormones being released in the body and into the bloodstream, increasing blood pressure, and, in some of them, blood sugar. Stress hormones angiotensin and endothelin are responsible for the damage, released in the inner lining of blood vessels when the body is experiencing extra stress. The sheer stress inside the blood vessel leads to erosion, which can lead to strokes,” ayon pa kay Vijay.
Ang isa raw sa magandang stress-reliever ay ang mag-yoga, do some meditation at manood ng paborito mong TV show or manood ng sine.
Kaya heto ang ilang election-themed movies na puwedeng panoorin pagkatapos mong bumoto…
