Not only can stress make your heart work overtime, it can literally make you age faster. According to Dr. Jay Winner, author of Take the Stress Out of Your Life and founder and director of the Stress Management Program for Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara, studies have shown that stress can actually alter a person's DNA, aging them beyond their years. Dr. Winner suggests first trying to let go of obvious stressors that you have control over. Not possible to ditch your stressful job right now? Then learn to cope with your reality. Take five minutes at work to stop and focus on your breath. Or if standing in line at the grocery store is causing your blood pressure to skyrocket, grab a magazine and take those five minutes to relax. And remember to be grateful for what you do have, like good health and a great family. Putting things in perspective will help you realize there are more important things to invest your mental energy in than a nasty case of road
