Your outlook on life can have a significant influence on your happiness, career, and health. Studies show that optimists are generally healthier, more successful, and enjoy stronger relationships than their pessimistic counterparts.
For years, researchers believed that, because optimism and pessimism are personality traits that are largely determined by our genes, they could not be changed.
However, we now know that environmental factors can make our genes dial up and down, much like a dimmer switch. In the words of Professor Tim Spector, “We are regaining control, if you like, of our genes.”
