Episode #34: Wellness: 6 Practical Ways to Improve your Optimism Muscle

Did you know people that choose to be optimistic versus pessimistic live longer, are less stressed, depressed and age slower (literally, their skin has less wrinkles and they look younger).

Yes, some people are just born happier than others, in fact 30% of optimism is genetic, but this also means that 70% is a skill you can learn.

Now, the purpose of life isn't to be happy all of the time, the purpose of life is to find peace in the entirety of life, the good and the bad. And, you can do that while also being practically optimistic.

Because when you choose optimism you are more creative and innovative and have deeper more personal relationships.

On this weeks podcast, I share 6 practical and evidence-based ways to improve your optimism muscle.

Listen in and choose one that resonates with you, practice it for 21 days, and see what else changes in your life.

Coaching for Latina Leaders

Leadership ability is equally distributed but opportunity to lead is not. This podcast is for all Latina's, those that identify as leaders and those that don't, yet. You'll learn how to let go of guilt and self-doubt so you can show up with confidence everywhere you go. No more questioning if your idea is good enough to share, if it's worth it to speak up, or if you're a good enough leader. All that self-critical B.S. stops now. Listen in as masterful educator and Harvard grad physician, Dr. Vanessa Calderón, teaches you how to let go of the things standing in the way of your success as a leader. Get ready, this podcast will accelerate your personal and professional growth.


Dr. Vanessa Calderón, MD, MPP has over 20 years of leadership experience. She is a Harvard grad, ER physician, Life and Leadership coach, and a mother of 2.
