Life Thoughts – Good Things to Know

Optimists Live Longer Than Pessimists

Optimistic people live longer than pessimists, according to a Mayo Clinic study that was started in the 1960’s. The 900 subjects were initially classified as optimists, pessimists, or a bit of both. Then, recently, researchers looked at the status of the test subjects as compared with their expected survival rates when the study began. Optimists had a significantly better survival rate, while there was a 20% increase in the risk of death for the pessimists.

Although the report did not try to explain why positive attitude was equated with longevity, it did say that optimists may be less likely to develop depression and helplessness and that they might be more proactive in taking care of themselves.

Keep smiling my friends!

The Bucket List

Hello,

The last couple of weeks,or perhaps even month and half have been a trail period for me.
I started doubting my choices in life about moving to Canada and that whole thing. I guess it feels so far away and the last time I was in Canada it was with mixed emotions.

The feeling of not moving anywhere and of having no wind in my sails are frustrating at best for an individual like me that loves speed and success. Read the rest of this entry »
