Optimism makes effects of a stroke less severe image

Optimists who suffer a stroke are more likely to have a good recovery. The damage caused by the stroke is less among those who maintain a positive outlook, researchers have found.

Three months after a stroke, the optimists had less inflammation and better physical mobility, say researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Centre who monitored the progress of 49 stroke survivors.

They discovered that those who remained positive had lower inflammatory markers—and inflammation after a stroke harms mental abilities and influences recovery.

Other studies have seen similar benefits of a positive mental attitude on other chronic health conditions too.
