We all have that one friend who always seems to be running late... Well a new study has found that those people are more likely to live longer!
"Many late people tend to be both optimistic and unrealistic," the researchers say.
"They remember that single shining day 10 years ago when they really did all those things in 60 minutes flat and forget all the other times that everything took much, much longer."
"Optimism helps people cope with disease and recover from surgery. Even more impressive is the impact of a positive outlook on overall health and longevity. Research tells us that an optimistic outlook early in life can predict better health and a lower rate of death during follow-up periods of 15 to 40 years."
So essentially it all comes down to the fact that people who run late tend to be more optimistic - which is linked to a longer life!
