High blood pressure: The Christmas action that may have unexpectedly lowered your reading


It is better to give than to receive, according to stress psychologists as the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The study, published in Psychophysiology, gave stressed people a choice between sending a gift to a person of their choosing and choosing a gift for themselves.

They were allowed to choose the gift they wanted to send and write a message explaining why they wanted to treat that person in particular.

The people who gifted to themselves saw no significant change, while the people who gifted to someone else had a significant drop in both blood pressure and heart rate.
