PSA Raises Awareness of Connection Between Chronic Stress and Physical Health
Between work, family obligations, and a constantly changing world around us – people in the U.S. are stressed. In fact, workers in the U.S. are among the most stressed in the world. While some stress can be good for us, constant or chronic stress can have real consequences on both mental and physical health. Higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol are linked to increased risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular events, like heart disease and stroke. Stress also leads to unhealthy habits like overeating, physical inactivity and smoking.
This spring, the American Heart Association is re-introducing its public education campaign on the connection between stress and physical health.
This PSA, available for broadcast and radio usage, aims to empower people to take actionable steps to reduce chronic stress and improve overall health and well-being.
We can’t create more hours in the day or completely avoid stress, but we can reclaim our lost minutes and turn them into “me time.” We hope you’ll be able to use the enclosed spots whenever public service time is available.
