A resilient heart is a healthy heart

According to a recent Cigna-Ipsos survey, people who recover more quickly from challenges are likely more proactive with their heart health.* The study found these new trends:

  • More resilient individuals report seeing a doctor for a medical exam within the last 12 months compared to less resilient individuals (67% vs. 54%)
  • More resilient individuals report completing bloodwork for a cholesterol level check within the past year compared to less resilient individuals (62% vs. 44%)

As the nation continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, building resilience becomes even more important. Learn more about the study findings.

*Findings from an Ipsos poll conducted January 8 to January 11, 2021, on behalf of Cigna. For the survey, a sample of 2,010 adults ages 18 and over from the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii was interviewed online in English. The poll has a credibility interval of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points for all respondents. Resiliency was determined by the Resilience Research Centre Short Adult Resilience Measure (ARM-R) (less resilient: score of 7-24; more resilient: score of 25-35).
