WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 26: A clock sits in a hallway of the Rayburn House Office building one week before the start of the 116th Congress, on December 26, 2018 in Washington, DC. With the new congress scheduled to start on January 3, 2019, Congressional Democrats and Republicans cannot come to a bipartisan solution to President Donald Trump's demands for more money to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Here’s something to show your boss!

People who usually run late also tend to be happier and live longer, according to a new study from Harvard University.

The study coming out of Harvard Medical School says that people who are running late are often operating with a sense of calm, and that’s quite possibly adding years to their lives. WHAT? I’m always panicking when I’m running late and stressing out. Additional research found 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.”

The study also mentions that people who are optimistic will have less chances of developing high blood pressure and heart disease. “Optimism appears to protect the heart and circulation — and it’s heartening to learn that it can have similar benefits for overall health.”

So take your time and don’t stress! However, you should probably be prepared to constantly be looking for work!
