How Negativity Adversely Affects Your Health (and what you can do) 

Yes, it's a fact, negativity adversely affects your health. For most of my adult life, I've believed one's outlook affects one's health. My unscientific observation has been that pessimistic people have more illnesses and ailments than those who see life's brighter side.
