If you’re in town for Halloween this year, you might want to wear a bit more than your usual outfit.
A new study from a leading medical organization suggests that wearing clothes that emphasize the body, such as tight clothes and tight-fitting underwear, may help lower blood pressure, reduce stress and increase your mood.
The study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at more than 1,200 college students and found that wearing tight-fit clothing in addition to your usual attire lowered blood pressure by about 0.3 millimeters per hour.
This is significantly better than the results of previous studies that have found similar effects.
“It’s important to remember that this is not a single study,” said study author Dr. Michael S. Schoenfeld, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Emory University.
“This is a population-based study that was conducted in the context of an outpatient setting and is based on an observational design.
Our findings suggest that the effect may be mediated by the way that students are dressed.”
In the study, participants wore a range of clothing to measure their blood pressure.
In one of the experiments, the participants wore tight-fitted clothing and a tight-toed sandals.
In the other, the students wore a loose-fitting shirt and pants.
The tight-suit students wore jeans and sneakers while the loose-toes students wore shirts and slacks.
Both groups were asked to wear tight-suits for an hour a day for a week, and then to wear their tight-pants and tight socks for an additional hour.
For the study participants, wearing tight clothing reduced blood pressure in the morning, followed by an hour-long rest period.
After this, blood pressure returned to baseline levels after about five minutes.
The researchers did not have participants’ heights or weights to gauge the effect.
“If we were to ask a group of high school seniors who are normally overweight or obese, or even obese and not overweight, how much they actually weigh, they would tell us that they don’t really know,” said Schoenfield.
“The reason they are telling us this is because they’re not aware that they are overweight, or they don.
They may not be aware that it’s a problem.”
If you’re a woman and your blood pressure is elevated, it could mean that your boyfriend or husband has a heart condition, diabetes or other health problems, or is taking medication that may affect your blood sugar.
“One of the things we want to be aware of is the role that your body plays in blood pressure,” said Srinivasan.
“If you have a blood pressure that’s elevated and you’re not taking medication to manage it, that may be an indicator of a problem.
So, in order to avoid the potential risk of this condition, it’s really important to get to a doctor to get checked out.”
If a woman’s blood pressure rises, she may be at risk of having another heart attack.
“That is an indication that it could be an underlying condition,” said Dr. Steven A. Pomerantz, a clinical professor of cardiology at the University of Pennsylvania and an expert in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease.
“I think that we need to look at the symptoms of hypertension and try to determine the underlying cause,” he added.
“There is a big emphasis in health care, particularly in the US, on reducing blood pressure and lowering risk factors, such that the person is not at risk,” said Pomerants co-author, Dr. John C. Wessel, director of the cardiovascular disease program at the Mayo Clinic.
“And for the most part, it works.
But we’re seeing an increase in the number of patients who have cardiovascular disease, which is a very important indication for our prevention efforts.”
Pomerantz said that in addition, it is important to look for the signs of hypertension that may indicate that the condition is getting worse.
“They should be able to walk down the street and not feel any pressure on their hands, wrists, hips, neck, and chest,” said Wessel.
“When you’re sitting at a desk and you are in a tight suit, it makes it more difficult to keep your hands from slipping on the desk.
It’s a challenge to move around and to get out of a chair, and so it is an important marker of the risk of hypertension,” said C.K. Pritzker, the president of the World Economic Forum.
“We need to make sure that we have strategies to reduce the risks of hypertension, so that people have a chance to get back to normal.”
The study also found that men who were in a tie or dress had significantly lower blood pressures than men in a regular dress.
Men who were dressed in tight-tied or loose-tie clothing had lower blood vessels and less blood flow to their heart and brain.
The study is part of the ongoing “How to Dress for the
