Empower Yourself With Optimism
Optimism: The Key To A Happier And Longer Life
There’s something to be said for optimism. Perhaps you have noticed that your optimistic friends seem to be cheerier, probably more successful, and just all around enjoying life more than others seem to. Well, it turns out they might not be optimistic because of what’s happening in their lives, rather, their optimism breeds the rest.
It seems then that there are plenty of great reasons to be the optimistic type. Perhaps the biggest one, though, is that optimists live longer, and are less likely to suffer from depression. Not to mention that they are more fun to be around.
There has been research widely carried out on both pessimists and optimists. While pessimists look on difficult situations as personal and permanent, the optimist looks at life differently, seeing adversity as an external temporary experience. This results in fairly different outcomes for individuals. Maybe it isn’t time to take off those rose-tinted glasses.
