I agree with you, mindset can change everything of course our heart

One way to become more optimistic is by socializing with other like-minded people. There’s the more immediate benefit, too, though; an optimistic mind-set simply helps our experiences feel more fulfilling and enjoyable. While many believe that optimism is something we’re born with in more or less finite quantities, we actually have some ability to shape our thoughts and actions–including our outlook on events.

I completely agree that a positive outlook or a positive mindset can definitely help in many cases. The only thing I caution is that we stay authentic. Sometimes we become so positive outwardly, but we numb awareness on the inside. For years, I did that and it almost cost me my life. Once I dealt with the underlying stuff holding me back, the positivity and positive outlook came naturally. It wasn’t really something I had to think about as it just happened as a result of the hard work I did on my mind body connection.

i agree with this article. Keep optimistic is good for your future of course because it’s good for your health, but if you too optimis you forget the risk that will happen in the future. Like you push too hard on something but you think it will work but it doesnt. It happens to me everytime.

II agree with most of this article but relaying the message to people NOT to express strong emotions is a misnomer. Cardiac patients need to learn to talk about their feeling and emotions without letting them bottle up and erupting like a Volcano. They have feelings that they need to process ; the mind and body are linked. They/we as a society need to disavow the notion of a cartesian split. I agree, that cardiac psychologists and those trained in mind-body techniques can be extremely helpful.
