Whether it’s positive, negative, or somewhere in between, your outlook is a key driver behind every aspect of your health and aging: “Outlook encompasses our personality, character traits, general disposition and attitudes, all of which are words used by researchers and clinicians to describe our psychological makeup…Our outlook, research shows, has the potential to influence every facet of our health, from how quickly we recover from an illness or surgery to whether we become depressed, develop cardiovascular risk factors, or suffer a heart attack, stroke, or cancer, and even how well we care for ourselves when our health begins to break down…Our outlook may be our earliest ‘risk factor’ for accelerating aging—before all the other traditional risk factors such as smoking and cholesterol levels that we’ve come to know and fear.” A positive outlook (or at least less negative one) can have a profound effect on improving quality of life and navigating difficult times: “Just as vaccines spur our immune systems to create antibodies against polio, pneumonia, influenza, hepatitis, and other diseases that have historically cause epidemics and even pandemics, facets of our outlook such as conscientiousness, optimism, openness, and self-compassion could arm us with the tools to cope with life’s hardships.” (p. 228) 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. The upside is that there’s much we can do to improve our outlook. _Up_ serves as a guide for doing so with its 7 Steps of Attitudinal Change: ● Determine your current attitude latitude (Point A) ● Aim your brain in the desired direction (Point B): Form an intention to change ● Examine your outlook in action by learning to listen to your inner conversation ● Acknowledge your accomplishments along the way ● Follow typical doctor advice ● Reach our for the benefits of social support ● Get a healthy dose of green: Cultivate your microenvironment The book shows how these steps look in real-life using real people’s stories, a plethora of clearly presented research findings, and explanations of key practices for implementing them, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, contemplation, guided imagery, and motivational interviewing. 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. It will appeal to readers of The Longevity Project by Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin as well as The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner.
