Frequently answering your mobile phone could affect your health, according to the latest findings of the research at the University of California.
The heart beat which is raised for prolonged periods increases the levels of cortisol, a heart stress hormone. People who are constantly alert have a raised heart beat rate.
When research was carried out on people who were not bound to answer their mobile phones on a regular basis, they found that the heartbeat was significantly lower. The relaxed state of these people paved the way for a healthier heart.
Stress busting techniques in the office include taking breaks either for tea and coffee or just for an informal chat with the colleagues. Keep your mobile phone away from your immediate reach. Your health will improve and stress levels will drop.
The same thing applies for people who are always answering their e-mails.
