How can you find out my stress just from my heartbeat?

Great question! You have probably heart about the fight-or-flight response that your body experiences when you are under stress. This response is regulated by the same sympathetic nervous system that controls the acceleration of your heartbeat. You may have noticed that your heart rate rises and feels a bit differently than normal. These changes are then calculated according to existing peer-reviewed research and presented to you as your stress score.
