As the author points out,

According to Dr. Sue Varma a clinical assistant professor of Psychiatry at New York University and author of Practical Optimism: The Art, Science, and Practice of Exceptional Well-Being: “Numerous studies involving over 200,000 individuals have found that optimism is linked to many positive outcomes. People who embrace optimism tend to enjoy improved immune function, better heart health, and even more positive health outcomes. They also experience fewer physical symptoms and less pain in general.”

In addition to being healthier, she also points out that optimists are wealthier, live longer, and are more successful in life, work, and relationships.

Good reasons to train our brain to be more optimistic!
