Optimism Tip of the Day

“Optimists seem to be sprinkled with fairy dust. They suffer less and recover quicker. They’re healthier and better-liked and have stronger marriages and more fun. It’s enough to make the rest of us gloomy—except that psychologists believe that a lot of these qualities stem from cognitive habits that can be learned. More than any other major personality trait, optimism is a matter of practice.” –Psychology Today

Today’s tip for cultivating more optimism is to start every morning this week with a positive affirmation started with “I am excited for ____ today!”

By doing this, you are setting up positive expectations for the day, and emphasizing something to look forward to.

Happy optimism!
