Be Optimistic—It’s Good for your Heart

by Reb Gutman Locks @ Mystical Paths


     A new study by the Harvard School of Public Health found that the most optimistic people had half the risk of a heart attack compared to the least optimistic. Those with a strong sense of well-being also tended to have healthier blood pressure, cholesterol and weight, and were more likely to exercise, eat well, get enough sleep, and avoid smoking.

     “Optimism” means to look on the more favorable side of things, and to expect the most favorable outcome. It includes believing that good ultimately predominates over evil in the world, and that goodness pervades reality.

     So, for your own wellbeing, say nice things about the people and things that are happening around you. Try it for one day and see what happens to your blood pressure.
