Having a stroke is no laughing matter. But if you can stay optimistic about your recovery, a new study says you may be able to speed up your healing and reduce disability. "This new study on stroke fits with older literature, which looked at optimism in terms of how people cope with illness," said Alan Rozanski, MD, professor of medicine and cardiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who has studied the role of positive thinking in disease prevention and recovery for years. "Optimism can be one of the important tools, if you will, to help people cope with illness and medical issues."
