November Theme Editorial: Optimism

cover-eco-lifestyle-home-news_11-2016-optimismAccording to the “Pursuit of Happiness” people: “Optimism has been proven to improve the immune system, prevent chronic disease, and help people cope with unfortunate news.

Gratitude is associated with optimism and has been determined that grateful people are happier, receive more social support, are less stressed, and are less depressed. Recent research indicates that optimists and pessimists approach problems differently, and their ability to cope successfully with adversity differs as a result.”

Optimism comes from an internal rationalization by reacting to problems with a sense of confidence and high personal ability. Optimistic people believe that negative events are temporary, limited in scope, instead of pervading every aspect of a person’s life, and are workable.

Optimistic people tend to view problems as external from them, very fluid, and a challenge that is workable. Pessimistic people tend to view problems as internal, unchangeable, and pervasive. Optimism has been shown to serve as a protective factor against depression, as well as a number of serious medical problems, including coronary heart disease. Pessimism has been linked with depression, stress, and anxiety.

Optimism can have profound effects on a person’s physical health. Expecting positive outcomes and being hopeful can boost a person’s immune system, protect against harmful behaviors, prevent chronic disease, and help people cope following troubling news. Optimism can even predict a longer life. Optimism may be one of the most important predictors of physical health.

Optimists are more likely to engage in problem solving when faced with difficulties.
So how does one become more optimistic? Cultivating an attitude of gratitude, certainly can’t hurt.

Being grateful feels good. Gratitude, the state or feeling of being thankful, is an almost universal concept among world cultures. People who are generally grateful report being more agreeable and less narcissistic compared with less grateful people. People who are more grateful also report being happier”~ “The Pursuit of Happiness”

The Roman orator Cicero wrote, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” I am optimistic about our future, perhaps it is my purple glasses!
