Kathleen Marriott's Keys to Optimism

"Some people may be naturally optimistic, but research suggests that it is a trait that can be developed through intentional practice if you are not or if you find yourself stuck."

From a very nice essay by Kathleen M Marriott, "The Science of Optimism: Developing a Positive Outlook."

Kathleen's key points are:

  • Practising mindfulness, gratitude, and visualization can help individuals build confidence, focus on a positive future, and change their mindsets.
  • A tangible way to start cultivating optimism is by writing down three good things that happen daily.
  • Optimism is a valuable trait that can support emotional and physical health, promote resilience, and enhance overall well-being.
