Optimism and Longevity
If optimism can improve people’s health, the logical assumption would be that it can boost longevity, as well. This supposition was proven in two separate studies. A 1960’s study evaluated 839 people for optimism and overall health. These people were rechecked after 30 years. The results showed that optimists who’d increased their pessimism also increased their mortality rate. Those who remained optimistic or increased their level of optimistic had a lower mortality rate.
The second study during the same period involved 6,959 students who were evaluated for a 40-year period. At the end of the study, pessimists had a 42 percent higher death rate than the more positive thinking group. A number of similar studies have confirmed the findings that an optimistic attitude can lead to better health and a longer life!
The Power of Optimism
Human beings were actually born with one ‘key attitude’ as part of our survival mechanism.
It’s being “Optimistic” – Seeing the good in the bad and constantly seeking for the opportunities in any given situation. It is also the attitude that makes us smile, live happily and enjoy life even more!
But over the years, we tend to forget about this, and let external factors get the best of us.
By mastering the attitude of optimism, you can lead a happier, calmer and stress-free life!
Optimism and Stress
Stress is one of the leading causes of death. A recent study showed that everyone, optimists and pessimists, experience stress. It’s a part of life and can’t always be avoided. It’s how an individual handles stress that is important. The same study revealed that optimists recovered much quicker from stress-related incidents than pessimists. As a whole, optimists feel less stressed because they don’t expect everything to go their way. They are mentally prepared to expect the best, but when it doesn’t happen, they keep their head up. Their world doesn’t fall apart because they have cultivated useful coping skills, and have a different perspective-- a more optimistic one. Adversity is seen as temporary in nature instead of a normal fact of life. Since optimists tend to be more hopeful, they are also likely to try harder, take more risk, and thereby create more positive events in their lives than pessimists.
