Do you ever wake up feeling like you want to punch the world in it’s face? You wake up..and every side of the bed is the wrong side? Yup, and on these days the only thing worse than your funky grumpervitis is when people try to tell you to chin up and think positive.
Well, my fellow grumplebumps, there’s good news for us afterall. Turns out that modern research shows that faking happiness and appearing more cheerful than you really are can lead to physical and emotional health problems. And get this, a pessimistic outlook is shown to lead to higher productivity, fewer mistakes, and better communication skills in the workplace. So, the next time you’re feeling grumpervated, instead of feeling down, celebrate your good health! Because grumpy = winning and everyone else can just go stick it where the sun don’t shine.
