In stress? Remember your romantic partner and keep BP down

Having a romantic partner present — even in your mind — can help you keep blood pressure down in daily stressful situations, say researchers.

When faced with a stressful situation, thinking about your romantic partner may help keep blood pressure under control just as effectively as actually having your significant other in the room with you, according to a study by University of Arizona psychologists.

“This suggests that one way being in a romantic relationship might support people’s health is through allowing people to better cope with stress and lower levels of cardiovascular reactivity to stress across the day,” said psychology doctoral student Kyle Bourassa.

“It appears that thinking of your partner as a source of support can be just as powerful as actually having them present,” Bourassa added.

For the study, published in the journal Psychophysiology, 102 participants were asked to complete a stressful task — submerging one foot into 3 inches of cold water ranging from 38 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Researchers measured participants’ blood pressure, heart rate and heart rate variability before, during and after the task.

The participants, all of whom were in committed romantic relationships, either had their significant other sitting quietly in the room with them during the task or they were instructed to think about their romantic partner as a source of support during the task. In third scenario, they were instructed to think about their day during the task.

The effect on blood pressure reactivity was just as powerful whether the partner was physically present or merely conjured mentally.

“The findings may help explain, in part, why high-quality romantic relationships are consistently associated with positive health outcomes in the scientific literature,” said Bourassa.

If replicated, the findings could have implications for those facing everyday stressful situations, the researchers added.

Best tips to find a girlfriend

Published

on

Hundreds of articles have been written about this, but this topic still remains relevant. One of the most common complexes of insecure men is the stereotype that a beautiful girl is meant to be with someone else but not him. Hence the further delusions at the sight of every beauty encountered. We come up with excuses for ourselves: “she has a boyfriend, she is in a hurry, not today, there is no point in approaching, I will seem like a moron, not my level.” We made a list of tips that will help you find a girlfriend.

  1. Don’t stay at home

Remember once and for all, by sitting with a bowl of chips, and a bottle of beer in front of a computer screen, you will never find a girl! It is unlikely that there is a slim, graceful, full-bosomed, and sleek dream girl who walks around the block and knocks on the door to the home-losers. If she’s not a postman, of course. What to do? Go outside. Yes, right now. For the beginners, it is better not to meet girls just on the streets, visit some hobby clubs and other popular among girl’s places.

  1. Learn to enjoy being alone

If you are alone now, this doesn’t mean that you should completely forget about yourself. You still have to dress well and beautifully, or how will she notice you? Be self-sufficient, self-confident, plus your loneliness should not oppress you; otherwise, you will become miserable. To make others feel good with you, let yourself be good. It is important to begin with yourself.

  1. Practice your skills 

If you want to find yourself a good, beautiful girl, then one of your main goals is to communicate with a large number of females. You must constantly practice and sharpen your communication skills. You should do it regularly and not once a month, or there will be no sense in those pieces of training at all. Especially if you search younger women for older men.

  1. Failures only make you stronger

Most men, in principle, are afraid to go up to the girl and start a conversation. They are afraid of being rejected. And although it doesn’t hurt and doesn’t make our sky to collapse, fear remains. So come on, don’t be afraid to ask her for the phone number. It doesn’t matter if you get a refusal or consent. Repeat this as many times as you need to get rid of fear. You get stronger every time.

  1. Stop looking for excuses.

All these phrases like “She is very beautiful, she probably has hundreds of people like me”, “She looks like she already has a boyfriend,” “She won’t like me,” “I guess I’m not her type,” “Now is not the best moment to talk, she is busy with something” are a complete nonsense. Stop looking for excuses for your fear and failures. Forget about them and your excuses. Act now. You should move only forward!

  1. Enjoy the process

No need to take everything too seriously. This is just a search for a girl, not a global catastrophe for all of humanity. If you relate to the whole process with ease, then there is a better chance that you are guaranteed success. After all, the whole process of seduction is a pleasure.

  1. Be yourself.

No need to try to please the girl completely lose herself. For example, if she is a vegetarian, don’t say that you are too if you are not. If she tells you stupid and unfunny jokes, then you don’t have to laugh. If she says complete nonsense, then don’t be afraid to tell her that you don’t understand and like her because of that.

  1. Pay attention to your appearance.

If you think that only men value women first in appearance, then you are deeply mistaken. Women pay attention to your figure, hands, shoes, hairstyle, clothing style. For them, this first impression is as important as for us. Therefore, you must be well-groomed, you must take care of yourself, go to the gym, keep yourself in shape. Pay attention to your clothes. Be stylish and choose the things that suit you. This will give you even more confidence, which means attractiveness in her eyes.
