HOW TO STAY POSITIVE IN THE MIDST OF STRESS
Featuring Judith T. Moskowitz, PhD, MPH

Judith Moskowitz, professor of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine, identifies eight skills that build positive emotions which, in turn, could add years to your life. 

Dr. Judith Moskowitz studies the unique mental and physical health effects of positive emotion, with a particular focus in the context of life stress and serious illness. Traditionally stress and coping research has focused on the (very natural and often adaptive) negative emotions that occur in the context of stress: anxiety, sadness, and depressive mood. However, Moskowitz’s work shows that even in the context of life stress such as serious illness or death of a loved one, positive emotions can and do occur, and have unique coping correlates and adaptive consequences.
