It’s no secret that having a positive mental attitude can be powerful. However, the tangible benefits of optimism may be surprising for many. According to a study at Yale University, positivity may actually have the potential to improve senior health.
The Benefits of Positive Thinking
The study conducted by Dr. Becca Levy at Yale University looked at the way different subjects viewed growing older. By the end of the study, Dr. Levy was able to find that those with positive views on aging were more likely to look forward to their years to come. The way they viewed their golden years may have even given them the power to adapt to new changes that commonly go along with growing older.
