    00:02 Okay, now.

    00:03 Let's take a look at the impact of this on your emotion.

    00:06 Now we all understand that emotionally we shift.

    00:11 We are happy or sad.

    00:12 We're stressed.

    00:13 We're surprised.

    00:14 And a lot of that gets, will impact our things like our health outcomes.

    00:19 So we know that emotional stress.

    00:21 So its particular type of stress is co-related with worse health outcomes.

    00:25 If you are stressed out, and you activate specific emotions specially long term.

    00:31 That can make your health worse.

    00:35 What am I talking about here? So, say for example, you have some underline cardiac issues.

    00:40 You might be aware of those cardiac issues.

    00:43 And this happens quite often.

    00:44 You hear of a lawyer, 45 years old, prime years of his life, dies of a heart attack.

    00:50 And there's, how did that happened.

    00:51 He seemed essentially healthy.

    00:53 Well, he was except perhaps he had underlined cardiac issue that went undetected because he was fairly young.

    01:00 He had no other symptoms.

    01:01 Why would he go to the doctor and say, "Hey, doc, check out my heart." But what they didn't know, he lived a very stressful life.

    01:08 And he was constantly stressed out at work.

    01:11 And he was being pushed, he is being pushed, he's being pushed.

    01:13 And that led to some emotional change.

    01:16 He was feeling down, depressed, overwhelmed.

    01:18 Continued his job.

    01:20 Continued what he needed to do.

    01:22 But that built up and that built up and it actually triggered his underlying cardiac issue which led to a heart attack.

    01:29 It can do things like exacerbate underlying depression or anxiety.

    01:33 So we say this can be a gateway or trigger for the development of some mood disorders.

    01:38 Whether they are already underlying and they haven't been expressed.

    01:41 This can push you over the edge.

    01:43 Now feel it.

    01:44 Now express symptoms of anxiety or depression.

    01:46 Or you can actually take a perfectly happy, normal healthy person and make them express a mood disorder like depression or anxiety.
