4 Healthy Benefits of Looking on the Bright Side

A growing body of research on optimism suggests the ability to see fullness instead of emptiness leads to a longer, happier life, as well as a more successful one. Martin Seligman, PhD, director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, nails the definition of optimism in his book Learned Optimism: “The optimist's outlook on failure can be summarized as 'What happened was an unlucky situation (not personal), and really just a setback (not permanent) for this one, of many, goals (not pervasive).'”

It turns out optimism is not merely about seeing the world through rosy lenses but about something more gritty: persistence in the face of failure. Optimists don't give up. And their resilience borders on the spiritual. When faced with situation beyond their control—uncontrollable stressors such as death, sickness and unemployment —an optimist taps into something Suzanne Segerstrom, a professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky and author of Breaking Murphy's Law, calls “existential resources.”

Segerstom defines this kind of resource as “having to do with the meaning of existence.” Optimists extend their conviction of the future's inherent beneficence even to events normally perceived of as negative. When faced with the death of a loved one, for example, an optimist might react by finding the good in the situation, or considering how the loss has made them grow as a person.

1. Better living through positivity

Claiming your optimism makes not only for a more pleasant life, but also a longer one. A study published in the January 2012 journal Psychosomatic Medicine showed that to be optimistic was a significant predictor of longevity. “Every thought, every experience, every emotion makes an impression on not only our subconscious mind, but also our physiology,” says Michael Murray, ND, an author of several leading books on natural medicine, including the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.

“There is an enormous amount of research indicating that a positive attitude as well as emotions have a positive effect on virtually every body function especially the immune, heart and vascular, detoxification, and hormonal systems.” A growing body of research points to the relationship between positive thinking and rates of depression, lower levels of distress, greater resistance to the common cold, and reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

2. Dispersing the gloom cloud

Segerstrom calls optimism the opposite of Murphy's Law—the idea that anything that can go wrong will. Luckily, according to the experts, optimism is something that can be learned. First, you need to unlearn the perniciousness of  pessimism. “Positively framed questions and affirmations are useful, but the biggest impact is made by simply becoming more aware of your habitual self talk and being a guardian against negativity,” says Murray. “We all talk to ourselves. There is a constant dialog taking place in our heads. Become aware of your self-talk and then consciously work to imprint positive self-talk on the subconscious mind.”

3. Fake it till you make it

Once you learn to counter your defeatism with a more upbeat take, you may find your behavior taking a radical turn. No longer stuck playing the victim role, heir to the seeming outrages of fortune, you may find yourself energized by your own autonomy. The ability to disengage from recurring negative thought patterns marks the decisive turning point.  Even if you aren't 100 percent convinced that good things will happen, at least you have lost your certainty that bad things will. The beauty of learning optimism is you don't have to be militantly starry-eyed—you can fake it till you make it, says Segerstrom. Acting as if you believe you can achieve your goals and vision is enough. Slowly but surely, the right feelings will come along for the (joy) ride.

4. Take your goals seriously

The best way to start acting optimistically? Become more engaged with your goals. Segerstrom recommends making a list of your goals for the next few months or years and reviewing it every so often to evaluate what's working (or not) or acknowledge how far you have come. Stay connected with your goals by reminding yourself why they hold such value for you. In her book Breaking Murphy's Law, Segerstrom credits psychologist Ken Sheldon with these three tips for increasing motivation and determination:

  1. Own the goal: What is the core value that the goal expresses? Stay in touch with why your goal matters.
  2. Make it fun: Find a way to maximize your enjoyment while in pursuit of your goal. If it's to write a novel, find the most conducive venue for writing.
  3. Remember the big picture: Don't get caught up in the details—instead remind yourself of the bigger picture it serves. Rather than “lose weight,” think about living a healthier, more exuberant life.
