If you own a heart-rate monitor, you know how effective it can be for keeping our heart rate in your target zone while running and cycling.  But one cardiologist says the monitors can be used to help eat stress during the rest of your day as well.  I have a friend whose job is highly stressful, and he wears his to work, says James M. Rippe, M.D., director of the Center for Clinical and Lifestyle Research and a professor of cardiology at Tuffs University School of Medicine.  He checks his heart rate now and then and he knows when he needs to take a break to unwind.  Dr. Rippe is finishing a year-long study of heart-rate monitors as stress-reduction tools.  Though he won’t reveal details of the study, he says some subjects and significant and measurable reduction in stress simply by monitoring their heart rates a few times a day.  (However, checking too often may actually cause stress, doctors wan.)  while stress is certainly not the only thing that increases heart rate (caffeine, physical activity and excitement do, too), Dr. Ripe says “it provides a window to what’s happening in the body.  You don’t have to go to  Tibet to de-stress; simply being in tune with your heart rate gives you a positive effect right away.
