If you believe in the power of positive thinking, the American Heart Association has a new study to support that theory. Researchers found that patients with a positive attitude had a tendency to work out more, increasing their chance of survival. Six hundred patients with coronary artery disease were questioned about their moods and habits. After five years, authors of the study returned to find that patients with a positive attitude were more likely to survive. In fact, 42% are more likely to survive than those patients who had a negative attitude.
