10 Ways To Be Happy and Live Longer

Glass half full?

The truth is 43% of marriages end in divorce and 240,000 women will develop cancer in the U.S. alone this year, so it’s no wonder that 51% of people are pessimists. Pessimists are paralyzed by these harsh realities, whereas optimists believe that they won’t end up as one of those statistics and if they do they feel they are strengthened by their struggles. Pessimists are skeptical about the point of suffering.

    Great post. Interesting from the get go to end. Life really is so much easier when you exclude negativity. I think it is also good to do something that you really enjoy (like dancing to your favorite song or watching your favorite show) at least once a day, it will help those happy juices to flow. Thanks for the amazing advice!

    I am so impressed with this post. This deeply resonates with me. I think we have to come to a realization that we will never be happy if we are always trying to find happiness from others, objects, and how well we can conform to society. I feel a lot more at peace and a lot more on fire to do my best after reading this. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this.

    Thank you! This arrived at the right moment. These are the words i was looking for today. Yes! so true! Life becomes hard and unfair when we decide to complain about things rather than trying to change them ourselves. It’s so refreshing to be reminded to accept and love myself. Looking forward to more inspiration. 🙂
