After a Heart Attack or Surgery, Gratitude Is the Secret to Emotional Healing, Says Author & Wellness Coach Michael Hesser

EVERGREEN, Colo., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- After a heart attack or open-heart surgery, it's not just your heart that needs to heal. Beyond the obvious physical toll, a heart event affects you mentally and emotionally. The initial relief you feel for having survived can be overwhelmed by a myriad of new emotions you didn't expect and don't quite know how to manage.

After his quadruple-bypass surgery in 2015, Michael Hesser faced these struggles personally. During recovery, he encountered fear, guilt, anger, and confusion over his purpose in life. And he discovered a simple secret for not just managing the journey, but actually thriving through the process: Gratitude. In the new book, A New and Better Now, Michael shows you how gratitude is more than just something you feel. Gratitude is a method for flourishing in the journey of heart healing and emerging as a better-than-ever version of you.

"In all variations of form and purpose, gratitude works.  It is at once essential as a trait, prolific as a behavior, undeniable as a fact, and unstoppable as an attitude."
- A New and Better Now, by Michael Hesser

"This book brings awareness to the experience and challenges after an open-heart surgery with a personal discovery of the author – gratitude as a way to heal and the way to live life.  Michael's courage to share the story with you through his heart surgery and recovery is remarkable."
- Tatiana O. Tsvetkova, MD, F.A.C.C.

Michael Hesser's career includes over 30 years as a behavioral insights consultant, wellness coach, speaker and author, providing strategic guidance to Fortune 500 leaders around the world.
