The secret to improving cardiovascular health and extending life

 The secret to improving cardiovascular health and extending life


When it comes to longevity, the focus is usually on food and exercise, but a new study shows that positive strength not only promotes longevity, but also reduces depression and heart health.

A new study in the United States found that optimists live longer than people who have a negative attitude towards life. Research shows that active people are more likely to live to the age of 85 years or older.

Experts concluded that two groups of people were recruited to participate in different studies, including 70,000 women in the Nurses' Health Study and 1,500 men in the Veterans Health Study.

In addition to their general health, they also assessed their level of optimism and asked about their exercise and diet, as well as how much they smoke and drink.

Studies have found that compared to people who are less optimistic, more optimistic men and women have an average life expectancy of 11% to 15% longer and are more likely to live to age 85.


Although little is known about the risk factors for disease and early death, little is known about what researchers call the "positive psychosocial factors" that contribute to healthy aging.

"Our results show that an increased level of optimism may promote longevity and healthy aging. Evidence from randomized trials shows that interventions include: imagining the future, everything will be better, or intense cognitive behavioral therapy can increase the level of optimism."

However, the exact reason why optimistic people can live longer is still being debated.

Preliminary evidence from other studies suggests that more optimistic people tend to have goals and confidence to reach them, are more effective at problem solving, and may be better at regulating emotions in stressful situations.

Mayo Clinic says researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking and optimism on health.

The health benefits that positive thinking can provide

  • Extending life
  • Decreased rate of depression
  • Strongest ability to resist colds.
  • Improving physical and mental health.
  • Improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
  •  Have better coping skills in difficult and stressful times.

A positive outlook on life

Having a more positive outlook on life doesn't mean being naive, but rather having the ability to deal with hate in a more positive and productive way.

Positive thinking usually begins with self-talk. These are endless thoughts that spin from the human head. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative.

A person can become more active in many ways, including owning a gratitude journal, spending time with animals or spending more time in nature.
