Why Hope Matters
“Hope serves as a buffer to stress, and is a signiﬁcant factor in physical and mental well-being…hope contains notions of an individualized, future orientation, implies active participation on the part of an individual and references the possibility of a positive outcome.”1 The ﬁndings of many studies demonstrate that living with hope is a signiﬁcant factor that assists individuals to adjust to their…illness, reduce their psychological distress and enhance their psycho-social well-being and quality of life.”1
In the book Anatomy of Hope by Dr. Jerome Groopman states: “I see hope at the very heart of healing. For those with hope, it may help some live longer, and it will help all to live better.”2 “Hope gives us the courage to confront our circumstances and the capacity to surmount them.”2
