National Optimist’s Day

National Optimist’s Day

Today, is National Optimist’s Day. Research indicates that optimists tend to have more positive mental health. One unique aspect from the research indicates that optimists tend to be more active coper with problems in life. One way then, to be more optimistic is to become a more active problem solver for things in life that are holding you back. Think of one thing in your life that is a barrier or a problem and instead of avoiding it…get together with someone and begin to plan for how you can whittle away at overcoming the issue that is preventing you from moving forward.
