A recent wave of research has deepened our understanding on the impact of emotional and psychological factors on heart health beyond just “broken heart syndrome.” Evidence suggests that we can lower our risk of cardiovascular disease through positive psychological well-being, including positive thoughts and feelings such as optimism, having purpose in life and happiness. Join us as our speakers share the impact that loneliness, depression and stress has on our hearts and provide insights on what we can do about it!
