Optimistic people tend to experience much greater personal joy on a day to day basis. Increased happiness is one of the immediate positive effects of a more optimistic attitude. People with a positive attitude live a longer and healthier life. A happier life means a healthier life.
Learning to maintain a positive, optimistic attitude during stressful times can be challenging. It may take some time before your natural response to almost any situation is optimistic.
The quickest way to an optimistic attitude is to start your day off by clearing your mind and then think positive thoughts. Then do your best to hang out with optimistic people. Seek out the company of those with a sunny disposition. A positive attitude increases your tolerance levels because it lowers the risk of you being irritated by little things. A positive attitude brings optimism into your life and makes it easier to avoid worries and negative thinking.
When you consider the short term and long range benefits of being optimistic, your efforts are bound to pay big dividends. Don’t give away your joy, stay positive!
