Optimism has been shown to improve your quality of life. Learn more.

Optimism is an outlook where a person believes that life is a positive experience. They think that people and things are fundamentally "good." When they encounter obstacles in life, they predict the outcome will be positive. An optimist views the good in people rather than their flaws. They genuinely think that people are fundamentally good and that things will work out for the best no matter what the circumstances. The word derives from the Latin “optimum,” which translates to "best." Here you will find articles focusing on how being optimistic can benefit you in life. Sometimes it can be challenging to see the bright side of hard situations, but if you are actively working on yourself, it will be easier to see the good rather than what’s wrong.
