Think Before You Honk!

I was in the car the other day and this guy behind me kept HONKING his horn over and over and over.  We were stuck on the Mercer Street Exit in traffic here and Seattle.  But still this dude in a Lexus kept honking his horn thinking it would make things go faster, or speed up traffic in some way and the more he hoinked the madder I got.  So naturally when I got home three hours later, I had to google "Noise and Stress" and this is what I came up with wow! Check it out:



In the past 25 years, the number of honking cars on the road and roaring planes in the air has ballooned. And consider all the new noises that didn't exist until fairly recently, like surround-sound movie theaters, car alarms, and ring tones. Sudden loud noises trigger a fight-or-flight response: The heart pumps harder, blood pressure rises, and the body releases stress hormones including adrenaline and cortisol. It's the inability to predict the sound that brings on the response; that's why the blast from your blender doesn't stress you out the way the sudden revving of a motorcycle does, even if the blender is actually louder. Here's how to stay healthier:
  • Noise-proof your health
  • Close your windows
  • Sleep with earplugs
  • Use noise-reducing headphones
  • Replace your rumbling dishwasher
  • Install sound-absorbing insulation
