Optimism Could Be the Key to Better Health

Optimism Could Be the Key to Better Health

Optimism is defined as a mental outlook that the future is filled with hope and success. Optimistic people expect the best while pessimists expect the worse to happen. Optimism offers numerous benefits like superior coping skills, decreased stress levels, improved physical health, along with enhanced tenacity, and persistence. Rather than seeing hardships as trouble, optimists see them as learning experiences. When the day is not going the way they hoped, they look forward to tomorrow for it will surely be a better day.

The Science Behind Optimism

Scientific researchers have reviewed more than 80 studies and have determined that optimism can improve an individual’s physical health. In fact, Harvard University reports that pessimistic men and women had a 42 percent higher death rate than optimistic individuals.

Optimistic individuals are often goal setters and take better care of themselves than pessimistic individuals. Optimistic individuals typically have healthier habits, including getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting routine medical checkups, and avoiding risky behaviors like smoking, drug usage, and consuming too much alcohol.
