Several studies have supported the links between a positive mental outlook and physical health benefits, like lower blood pressure, healthier blood sugar levels, and reduced risks of heart diseases.
In a recent study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry in September 2020, scientists have also discovered that healthy brain functions may result in maintaining a positive outlook. Participants of the study included 716 community-dwelling adults who were assessed to have a normal cognitive and neurological function. Their moods were measured using the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS).
The researchers noticed that our mood tends to improve as we age until the early 70s—at this point, the mood eventually starts to reverse. However, stable white matter integrity and healthy brain functions and processing seem to lay off this mood reversal.
