Positive Outlook

Happy ManBy Heidi Hershley, Executive Director, American Heart Association

In some studies, researchers are looking at the link between an optimistic outlook and heart health. Other studies point to happiness as improving productivity, health, and quality of life.

While the direct health impact of either is unclear, what is known is that a positive state of mind serves you well.

Where to begin? Focus on a positive every day. Write down things you are grateful for or send a note of appreciation.

Release worry and unproductive distractions. Activities and meditation help.

Silver lining: Make a positive outlook a priority and enjoy the wellness benefits.
