It Pays to be a Pollyanna

Recent travel has afforded me with time to catch up on reading articles I’d previously relegated to my “to-do” list. And in doing so, I read about a study (citations omitted) that revealed the powerful benefits, both physical and psychological, of positive thinking. Along with decreasing the sequalae of misdirected anger, the study described the health benefits of optimism including decreased heart disease and anxiety. It further described what I believe to be true: that by maintaining a positive outlook on life, the hard times will be lessened and the good times will be enhanced.
