believing that there will always be opportunities to make things better tomorrow, even if you are experiencing challenges today.........

Life and world events may be challenging and impacting our sense of optimism but research shows that it is the key ingredient to getting through challenging times, reducing stress and anxiety. We have a choice to build this resource that can, with practice be available to us in abundance when needed. In cultivating optimism, we learn to believe that when bad things happen, they won’t last forever and that the good in life will return! Seeing "The light" and hoping for a better future results in improved health, longer life, reduced anxiety, more fulfillment, and higher productivity.

According to Very Well Mind, Here are a few signs of how we can practice living with increased optimism.

  • You feel that good things will happen in the future.
  • You expect things to work out for the best.
