Look for the silver lining. As the saying goes, “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” When facing major
challenges, try to look at them as opportunities for personal growth. If personal poor choices contributed to a stressful situation, reflect on them and learn from mistakes.
One of the best-known ways to keep feeling young is having a positive mental outlook. For a healthier and happier life, surround oneself with positive, vibrant people – and be one. Cheerful people are less likely to get sick. They also live an average of 7.5 years longer. Do the things that make happy more often, and try to let go of negative emotions like anger, guilt, resentment, grief, and shame. Negativity saps vitality and creates stress, which affects health and well-being. If there is a need for guidance in recharging the happy engine, find a qualified therapist or certified coach who can help redirect negative emotions.
