Ponce de Leon Should Have Smiled More...

Here's an article about an eight year study of 100,000 women that reports that the women who were optimists had a lower general death rate and a 30% power death rate from heart disease.

The researchers didn't know the exact cause, but there is a correlation.

I often say in my speeches, "life is too short to not have fun." Well now it seems that "life is too short if you choose to not have fun." Weird...

The first key mentality to improvising with anything is to choose to have fun!. And yes, it's a choice. Having fun increases your energy and creativity, and can make you smarter. Now it seems it can even prolong your life. What's not to like??

So if you want to live a long life, remember what the great philosopher, Bobby McFerrin, said, "Don't Worry, Be Happy."
