Rebeat - Georgina Seviour
More than 250 million people across the world suffer from anxiety disorders: a 14.9% increase since 2005. Stress is an even greater problem; one in five adults experience stress on a daily basis, costing the economy 4 billion pounds a year due to lost working days. Both conditions can debilitate the individual in their daily activities and compromises their overall quality of life. The heart plays a vital part in the stress and anxiety response; the faster the heart beats the faster it pumps stress hormones around the body. Rebeat counters the stress response by helping to lower high heart rates.
