Did you know pessimism has been linked to a higher risk of dying before age 65? On the other hand, expressing positive emotions, such as optimism, is associated with a variety of health benefits: lowered production of the stress hormone cortisol, better immune function, and reduced risk of chronic diseases. If you are stressed-out or anxious, which can be either a cause or an effect of a pessimistic outlook, try the following:
- Take care of yourself by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and getting adequate sleep.
- Express your emotional reactions honestly so you can effectively deal with what’s bothering you.
- Confide in someone – your mate, a good friend or a trusted relative.
- Laugh. Even fake laughter has healthful benefits. Watch a comedy, tell stories with close friends and family or just start smiling and laughing in the mirror.
- View the cup as half full instead of half empty.
