Optimistic women have it good; they’re less susceptible to ill health and better able to fight off ailments if they strike.
Given that stress and unhappiness can have a negative impact on your health, it stands to reason that happiness resulting from an optimistic attitude stands you in good stead.
Instead of looking at the black clouds above, think about the blue sky beyond them. Instead of seeing a mountain with an impossible climb, imagine yourself already standing on the summit. In the same way you exercise to build physical strength, keep exercising optimism to strengthen it.
Today is your day to start the world over. So, make it a healthy one!
