Icilma Fergus, MD, Director of Cardiovascular Disparities for the Mount Sinai Health System said, “It is absolutely critical for everyone to take steps to de-stress and protect your heart health. During stressful times, I advise my patients to stop and take a few minutes to breathe. Relaxation is key, and it is important to set aside time for yourself to decompress.  I also advise patients to keep a positive attitude and remain optimistic.  These simple steps go a long way.”

We all face lots of negative situations that cause stress. It's important to believe we can get through them to stay healthy.

Given this research it's encouraging to know that optimism can be learned.
