More heart attacks and strokes happen on Mondays than on any other day of the week. The fewest take place over the weekends.
Seasons also play a role. Heart attacks occur more in the winter than summer. The stress of work and social demands trigger these events.
Hostile co-workers, demanding bosses, traffic, and job insecurity are factors. Financial stress and family problems increase the flow of stress hormones setting us up for problems.
My office was on a very busy thoroughfare and the screeching ambulance sirens on Monday mornings made it nearly impossible to test. This wasn’t a problem on holiday Mondays.
Learn the signs of heart attack and stroke. Usually, there are years’ worth of these signs before the actual event.
Start with the small things in life you can control and improve your health.
