We’ve all heard the saying “for every minute of anger you lose 60 seconds of happiness,” but maybe we should change that to “you lose another degree of financial health.”
As part of its Opt for Optimism campaign, Frost Bank and positive psychology researcher Michelle Gielan found optimists are seven times as likely to experience greater financial health than pessimists. The study found the positive correlation regardless of wealth, income and other factors.
Since 91 percent of Americans want to be more optimistic, Frost offers tips: take the taboo out of money, seek progress over perfection and expect the unexpected.
