If you've been reading this blog for more than a few weeks, you probably know that I'm a big fan of optimism, as it has such effective stress relief properties:
- Optimists enjoy better health.
- Optimists find more success.
- Optimists feel less stressed during stressful times.
- Optimists tend to have more supportive networks and resources.
- Optimists enjoy life more.
Well, if you've been meaning to work on your ability to be optimistic, or have wondered about the benefits of optimism, where you stand on the optimism-pessimism spectrum, or have had any other questions about optimism (or even if this is all new to you), this is your month to turn things around! There is no better time than Optimism Month (in a year when the economy is tanking and stress seems to be all around us in full force) to become more educated about optimism, what it can do for you, and how to develop this habitual pattern of thinking (it can be done)!
And the best part is, this wonderful stress relief tool is also FREE!
