Optimists Fare Better in Life

According to a study done by researchers at Yale and Miami Universities, people over 50 who viewed aging as a positive experience lived an average of 7.5 years longer than those who didn’t. In other words, being able to see something we normally perceive as negative in a positive light seems to not only increase our ability to cope (the optimists in this study had more energy, fewer limitations, and less pain as they aged) but also to increase our life span.

Make. Work. Better.
