Half-Minute Health Helpers: Positive Thinking
Here is the audio text to the video:
“It’s long been noticed that grumpy, stressed-out Type A personalities are at a higher risk for having a heart attack. So I guess it comes as no surprise that studies show that individuals who are upbeat, enthusiastic and optimistic appear to have fewer heart attacks.
So manage that stress with a little meditation, exercise, or some lively music, and turn that frown upside down and your heart will be smiling too.”
