I decided to do a little research to see if being positive is a good idea, if being positive is worth the effort.
Here's what I found-
-Dr. Laura Koniver, who's an expert on grounding, says that optimism improves your body's health, that it protects the health of both your brain and your body. A positive outlook can even help you live longer. And, a negative attitude can harm your brain and body.
-The current special edition issue of the magazine, "ID," from A360 Media, "Marvels of the Mind," has an article that says that positive thoughts can even help heal. The article went on to say that people who have good posture tend to be more positive, and those who have poor posture tend to be more negative! What an incentive to better our posture!
-Delilah, American radio personality, recently had some words of wisdom about negative people. She said that she no longer wanted to be around people who are (I'm paraphrasing) negative, gossipy, mean, snarky, and those who say hurtful things because she didn't want to be like them. (Good for her! Good idea!)
Small Business Feature-
A local book publisher in my area, Victoria Fletcher, has a positive attitude. She works hard, is enthusiastic and upbeat, loves what she does, and she's very successful. Not only does she publish other people's books, but she has published 23 of her own books, as well! For an example of her excellent publishing work, see the first widget (above), "Down Memory Lane" by Becky Arnott. FYI- www.facebook.com/HootBooks
So, is being positive a good idea? I would have to say that it's actually a great idea, and that it is worth the effort!
