GERMANY – It may sound like a long shot, but a German study shows that could very well be true.
Older people who believe their life will improve with age face a 10% higher mortality rate. They are more likely to develop health problems.
People with a pessimistic outlook may take better care of themselves and be more cautious of taking risks.
But that just doesn’t seem to sit right with what we’ve been told up to now. Maybe pessimist are just realists and see life as it actually is rather than what they wish it would be.
