OBJECTIVES We examined the cross-sectional association between optimism and cardiovascular health (CVH). METHODS We used data collected from adults aged 52-84 who participated in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) (n=5,134) during the first follow-up visit (2002-2004). Multinomial logistic regression was used to examine associations of optimism with ideal and intermediate CVH (with reference being poor CVH), after adjusting for socio-demographic factors and psychological ill… Expand
Achieving Optimal Cardiovascular Health: a Social Epidemiological Approach
TLDR
Research on psychosocial and behavioral factors suggests that social connections, psychological resources, and health-maintaining behaviors are important areas to target to improve CVH in minorities and other vulnerable groups. Expand
Self-rated health as an indicator of ideal cardiovascular health among working-aged women
TLDR
The sum of ideal CVH metrics was positively associated with good SRH driven by favorable health behaviors (nonsmoking, normal body mass index, healthy diet and physical activity), and a linear decrease in the prevalence of 0–2 idealCVH metrics, and alinear increase in 5–7 metrics was associated with better SRH. Expand
Optimism and cardiovascular health among African Americans in the Jackson Heart Study.
TLDR
Higher levels of optimism were associated with greater prevalence of ideal (vs. poor) physical activity and smoking, and promoting positive optimistic orientation may be an important step toward increasing the likelihood of achieving optimal cardiovascular health among African Americans. Expand
Optimism and Cardiovascular Health: Longitudinal Findings From the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults Study
TLDR
Optimism may contribute to establishing future patterns of cardiovascular health in adulthood, but other factors may be more strongly related to how slowly or quickly cardiovascular health deteriorates over time. Expand
Association between self-rated health and ideal cardiovascular health: The Baptist Health South Florida Employee Study
TLDR
Favorable SRH was consistently associated with better CVH, and the odds of having a higher CVH score increased as SRH improved. Expand
Psychological Well-being's Link with Cardiovascular Health in Older Adults.
TLDR
Findings suggest that psychological well-being is associated with having FCH at older ages, and add to knowledge of assets that may increase likelihood of healthy aging. Expand
Association of dispositional optimism with Life’s Simple 7’s Cardiovascular Health Index: results from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) Sociocultural Ancillary Study (SCAS)
TLDR
Preliminary evidence for an association between optimism and CVH in a large heterogeneous group of Hispanic/Latino adults is offered and a novel therapeutic target for consideration is suggested. Expand
A sad heart: Depression and favorable cardiovascular health in Brazil.
TLDR
It is suggested that the greater odds of having poor CVH among depressed individuals is not unique to high-income countries, and associations are evident across both somatic and cognitive components of depression. Expand
Positive emotions and favorable cardiovascular health: A 20-year longitudinal study.
TLDR
Positive emotions in early to middle adulthood were associated with better CVH across several decades and future research may be able to disentangle these relationships by assessing positive emotions and CVH earlier in life. Expand
Optimism and Quality of Life among Cardiovascular Disorder Patients
The role of psychological factors in the occurrence of Cardiovascular Disorder has been, widely excepted. CVD is a family of diseases that includes hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD) andExpand

Association of Optimism and Pessimism With Inflammation and Hemostasis in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA)
TLDR
Pessimism is related to higher levels of inflammation and health behaviors, BMI, hypertension, and diabetes seem to play a mediating role. Expand
Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis: objectives and design.
TLDR
The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis was initiated in July 2000 to investigate the prevalence, correlates, and progression of subclinical cardiovascular disease (CVD) in a population-based sample of 6,500 men and women aged 45-84 years for identification and characterization of CVD events.

Lifestyle and dietary correlates of dispositional optimism in men: The Zutphen Elderly Study.
TLDR
Dispositional optimism in elderly men is associated with healthy lifestyle and dietary habits, and a low level of optimism may indirectly affect proneness to cardiovascular death via unhealthy behavioral choices. Expand
Optimism, Cynical Hostility, and Incident Coronary Heart Disease and Mortality in the Women’s Health Initiative
TLDR
Optimism and cynical hostility are independently associated with important health outcomes in black and white women and future research should examine whether interventions designed to change attitudes would lead to altered risk. Expand
Life’s Simple 7 and Risk of Incident Stroke: The Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke Study
TLDR
In both blacks and whites, better cardiovascular health, on the basis of the LS7 score, is associated with lower risk of stroke, and a small difference in scores was an important stroke determinant. Expand
Socioeconomic Status and Psychological Well-Being Predict Cross-Time Change in Glycosylated Hemoglobin in Older Women Without Diabetes
TLDR
Investigating whether socioeconomic status and psychological well-being predicted nondiabetic levels of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) over time, after adjusting for covariates and baseline level of HbA 1c suggested that psychologicalWell-being and socioeconomic status interact in important ways in influencing nondi diabetic glucose metabolism. Expand
Psychosocial determinants of the onset and escalation of smoking: cross-sectional and prospective findings in multiethnic middle school samples.
TLDR
The behavioral-specific determinants of smoking appear to be important predictors of smoking status outcomes in all demographic subgroups and may help facilitate the targeting of comprehensive interventions aimed at reducing adolescent smoking in multiethnic and ethnic group-specific populations.

Ideal Cardiovascular Health Is Inversely Associated With Incident Cancer: The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study
TLDR
Adherence to the 7 ideal health metrics defined in the AHA 2020 goals is associated with lower cancer incidence and should continue to pursue partnerships with cancer advocacy groups to achieve reductions in chronic disease prevalence. Expand
The heart's content: the association between positive psychological well-being and cardiovascular health.
TLDR
Findings suggest that PPWB protects consistently against CVD, independently of traditional risk factors and ill-being, and optimism is most robustly associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular events. Expand
Dispositional optimism and health behaviour in community-dwelling older people: associations with healthy ageing.
TLDR
It is concluded that dispositional optimism is associated with healthy ageing, and the relationship between optimism and healthy ageing was only partly mediated by the health behaviours assessed in this sample. Expand
