Back to the heart! (part 2)

Luisana, Eri, Katie


Everyday activities have different effects on the heart. Things that woud be enjoyed would lead to a slower heart rate. Things that would cause discomfort or need additional energy to perofrm would cause the heart to undergo a faster heart rate.


Watching something that causes tension or experiencing physical exertion definitely shows signs of accelerated heart rates. Something that evokes endearment makes one more relaxed and allows them to function with a slower heart rate.
