Optimism May Reduce Heart Attacks!
I found this great article in my Fitness Journal and felt the need to share with my fellow women golfers.
Looking on the sunny side of life may help you be both happier and less likely to have a heart attack, according to a recent research review of more than 200 published studies.
“We found that factors such as optimism, life satisfaction, and happiness are associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease regardless of such factors as a person’s age, socioeconomic status, smoking status, or body weight,” said lead author Julia Boehm, research fellow in the department of society, human development, and health at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.
The review found that the risk of having an initial cardiovascular event was approximately 50% lower in the most optimistic people than in those who were less optimistic.
The next time your golf game isn’t going exactly the way you want it to, take a moment, BREATHE, and look on the sunny side! Enjoy You Life, Tracy
