Studies have found that there is a correlation between increasing levels of optimism with decreasing levels of death from cancer, disease, infection and stroke. This is particularly true for cases of cardiovascular disease. Those that had the highest levels of optimism had an almost 40% lower risk of heart disease.

At G&G we're always talking about the mind-body connection: how our emotional and mental state can affect our physical health. With studies backing us up, it seems more important than ever to take care of both our minds and bodies.

Here are some tips on how to develop a stronger sense of positivity and optimism:

  • Relish the good things in life.We find gratitude journaling a great tool for this.
  • Spend time in your parasympathetic nervous system. Yoga helps take you to this blissful relaxed state.We also need experiences that make us laugh and feel good.
  • Connect with yourself and those around you. Isolation can push us into a heightened state, make the effort to reach out to someone, anyone! It could be helpful for you both!

Now we hope you agree...That glass is always full.
