Research Experiments and Assumptions: Healthy Hearts


- From the general public.

1. Exercise or nutrition alone, will keep a healthy heart.

2. Stress is purely an emotional or psychological thing.

3. All stress is bad.

4. Stress has no effect on my heart or physical health.

5. Emotional or psychological elements can't help my physical body.

6. If i appear fit, then I am healthy, my heart is healthy; invincibility.
- From me

7. The design field is more stressful than most, from creative pressure and not physical pressure.

8. Not all designers have the time to take a break from their normal routine.

9. Most won't think an emotional exercise will be credible towards their health.

10. Not all will think something as simply as laughter or playing the guitar can reduce stress and strengthen blood flow in and out of your heart.

11. Heart disease is low on the totem pole next to most medical deffects.

12. Go green, and health programs are purely trend and need persuasive elements to make change.

13. Most will stress just thinking about stress.

14. Most think that its too complicated to help, and do nothing. Intimidation.

15. They think they need outside help to help themselves. Lack of responsibility.
