HealthDay News
Updated: Dec 6th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- Arguing with a partner or feeling anxious about meeting the in-laws can induce stress. When these strains are intense or prolonged, your heart can suffer, says Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The school mentions these healthier ways to deal with relationship stress:

  • Discuss life stresses with your doctor.
  • Check if your coping strategies are healthy.
  • Find stress outlets that make you feel better quickly, and in the long term.
  • Make taking care of yourself a top priority.
  • Pay attention to newer symptoms, such as pain or nausea.
