Motivate Yourself

Increase your motivation to change your outlook and to more fully express your feelings by understanding the big picture: The type D personality style is destructive to your health. Although many of these changes are difficult to accomplish, they will definitely be worth it in the long run. You can improve your overall health, your emotional well-being and your recovery from illnesses. What could be more important?


Do you have a question about personality and heart health? Dr. Landau will be answering your questions on our Heart Health message board on Monday through Friday, 8/15 to 8/19.
