Stress is another factor that can negatively affect our heart health

Delaware Fatherhood and Family Coalition - Sunday, February 08, 2015

Stress is another factor that can negatively affect our heart health. We all have some stress in our lives, but families experiencing high-conflict relationships may be exposed to unhealthy levels of stress. In addition to affecting heart health, unhealthy levels of stress can lead to chronic fatigue, depression or over-use of substances such as alcohol.

Recognizing the signs of unhealthy conflict in a relationship allows couples and families to address concerns and work together to improve relationship skills as a strategy for reducing stress. Wonder how well you manage conflict? Visit our Virtual Training Center and take the Conflict Management Course, part of our Core Marriage and Healthy Relationship Skills (4-part series) and find out. Healthy communication and conflict management are part of a healthy lifestyle just like eating right and regular physical activity. Take advantage of the tips and resources below to assist you and the families you serve in strengthening relationships and getting heart healthy.

Some tips to keep your relationship healthy

Research shows that improved emotional, social, physical, and spiritual health leads to better outcomes for couples and families. Couples can support each other in improving their health by doing activities together or encourage each other to do activities alone or with friends. Here are several tips to keep yourself and your relationship healthy

  • - Practice deep breathing and other stress management techniques, which are available in many communities at no or low cost through community centers and health centers.
  • - Focus on relationship maintenance strategies such as eliminating distractions (TV, phone) during meals.
  • - Spend time together in the community; volunteer to serve meals once a month at a homeless shelter, for example.
  • - Go for a walk together after dinner, and/or limit fast food intake to once a month.
