Good news for optimists

by on
in Workplace Communication

Some findings about folks who look on the sunny side:

  • They’re less susceptible to heart disease.
  • Their blood pressure is typically five points lower than other people’s.
  • They live, on average, more than nine years longer than the rest of us.

More reasons to be an optimist:

  • Among people with similar medical conditions, those who feel healthier live longer.
  • Optimism is an action, not a state of mind. You can probably guess that optimists move around more, eat better and smoke less.
  • Happiness comes and goes, but optimism means steadily working toward a better future.
