Optimists Live Longer

The value of positivity is ever growing. A Mayo Clinic study shows that pessimists have a 19% greater chance of dying prematurely when compared to optimists. When it comes to health, optimistic people believe they have the power to improve their well being. On the other hand, pessimists tend to make things harder on themselves by fostering feelings of doubt and powerlessness. If you want to live a long, healthy life start seeing the glass as half full.[1]

Even if by nature you are a pessimistic person that does not mean you do not possess the power to change. Make the effort to transform every negative thought into a positive one by focusing on the good attributes and valuing them over the bad.

Express your love today!
