Up: How Positive Outlook Can Transform Our Health and Aging

Why looking up matters... A positive attitude is important, but until now we didn’t know how important. In Up, a practicing physician and NIH-funded researcher draws on her research and experience to show that our outlook on life - our unique patterns of thinking and feeling about ourselves, others, and the world - may be the key to how well and how fast we age. From wrinkles to cognitive decline, our outlook affects our health at every level.

Publisher's Summary

Why looking up matters... A positive attitude is important, but until now we didn’t know how important. In Up, a practicing physician and NIH-funded researcher draws on her research and experience to show that our outlook on life - our unique patterns of thinking and feeling about ourselves, others, and the world - may be the key to how well and how fast we age. From wrinkles to cognitive decline, our outlook affects our health at every level.

Using the framework of outlook GPS, Up illustrates how we can gauge our current attitude latitude and move to healthier ground. Tindle brings a fresh eye to attitudinal traits such as optimism, noting that it has many faces, including the face of her own struggling optimism. Using the 7 Steps of Attitudinal Change that she applies to her own patients, Tindle offers us a path toward healthy aging. Prescriptive and accessible, Up puts forward a paradigm shift in how we age and treat disease, giving even the most struggling optimists a chance for hope.

"The latest scientific research confirms that developing a sense that you can make things better in the future is a key first step to improved health. The trick is how to do this. Up is Dr. Hilary Tindle's excellent guide to making the turn to that important new direction. It's a path not only to better health but to a happier life." (Howard S. Friedman, author of The Longevity Project)

    "A Must For Everyone!"

    I heard about this book and was fascinated but waited to purchase it for almost nine months. Then I didn't listen to it for another eight months. But within the first five minutes I wondered why I took so long. I then purchased an electronic version because I wanted to "see" so much of what she wrote about in order to communicate it to others.

    Seeing other reviews about this book it saddens me that it has not necessarily caught on to the audience that needs to read it the most: the "lay" population. I see a lot of doctors and nurses (myself included) who recognize the value of this topic. But the word needs to get out there to everyone else!

    This book was well written. It has clear language about evidence based research findings. The writing catches and keeps your interest. The author reads it very well. I love everything about this book!! I will use the information not only in my personal life, but also in my professional life: as a nurse an as an educator.
