A new study in Denmark, which lasted for 11 years and involved 9870 adults since 2000, found that compared to those without corresponding problems, the mortality rate of people who often experience emotional distress due to marital relationships doubled; People who are often anxious about parent-child relationships have a 50% increase in mortality rate; People who often argue with their families have a doubled mortality rate; The mortality rate of people who often argue with their neighbors has doubled. Research has also found that people with severe mental problems have an average life expectancy reduction of 7 to 24 years.
The negative impact of negative emotions such as anxiety on the human body is comprehensive.

If there is long-term chronic anxiety, the risk of asthma, heart disease, and stroke increases, the digestive system is disrupted, memory is significantly reduced, and abnormalities such as fatigue and insomnia can also be caused.
The impact of emotions on health and lifespan is beyond doubt. Generally speaking, negative emotions come from stress, which can be divided into two types.
