"There are many reason why researchers propose heart attacks increase during the winter holiday season." Diamond Fernandes states.
1. Emotional Stress: unfortunately the holiday season can be a source of stress with family you do or do not want to interact with or financial pressures with gifts and travel expenses. With Christmas here people get tense having to spend time with family. On the other hand, it could be a time of sadness and depression missing loved ones or not having special people to spend the holiday season with. This all affects our heart health.
2. Weather: breathing cold air can constrict the blood vessels and therefore increase the pressure causing clots to form. However, there are still a number of heart attacks in warmer weather climates. Even our climate with long nights makes people prone to depression.
