Are you an Optimist or Pessimist?

From Elizabeth Scott, M.S., your Guide to Stress Management
October commemorates both "Positive Attitude Month" and "Emotional Wellness Month," which adds up to less stress. Looking on the bright side, as was mentioned in last week's newsletter, Optimism, Joy and The Bright Side, can bring greater emotional wellness and resilience, and both positive attitudes and emotional wellness are associated with reduced feelings of stress. This newsletter focuses on positive attitude development, and the next newsletter will let you know what you can to maintain emotional wellness. This is going to be an October to remember! -Elizabeth Scott

Learn what you can do to make important attitude shifts (even if you are naturally prone to see the negative first!), and join us in celebrating Positive Attitude Month!

How does a positive attitude affect stress levels? Find answers to these questions--if you've wondered these things, you're not alone!--and pave the way for a brighter tomorrow.
