Beware! Traffic Jams Can Give You A Heart Attack

Traffic jams are the most irritating part of the day or I must say days altogether. You leave home with a fresh mood, cleanly dressed up with a purpose to reach your office or college daily on time, and then suddenly you are stuck in traffic, with two things on your mind-- I hope this jam disappears as soon as possible and the other thought being the excuse you can make in front of your boss or teachers. Or sometimes, when you think of reaching home early and making a great dinner, this might exhaust you already.

Certainly, this wouldn't be new for the ones living in metro cities. You must be familiar with such things on a daily basis, right? But for your knowledge, being habitual might be good according to you but it has drastic effects on your mind as well as your body.
