Being happy and naturally optimistic cuts the risk of developing heart problems, say researchers.

Findings published in the European Heart Journal reveal the potentially damaging effects of pessimistic thoughts and long-term negativity.

“This is the first study to show an independent relationship” between heart disease and a positive attitude that was spelled out through clear data, as opposed to just being based on a person’s own report of their attitude.
