There are plenty of ways to say it: look on the bright-side, the glass is half full, cheer up, buttercup. Thinking positively has shown over and over again a testament to health benefits. In fact, the placebo effect is empirical proof for thinking positively. Turns out, thinking positively can deter the onset of Alzheimer’s. People at the age of 40 were asked about their feelings on aging. Those who had a less-than-positive feeling about the inevitable, had a greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease. This was seen in the decreased size of the hippocampus over a 20-year study of brain images. The hippocampus regulates memories and emotions. Fill it with happy emotions and good thoughts, especially about aging, and you’ll be golden for those years in life.
