I’m actually not finished watching this lecture but I found it very interesting as it relates to longevity and stress as the professor is also speaking of the caregiver and even how childhood traumas can affect telomeres and longevity. I may update after I finish watching.

1 – Notice positive events
2- Capitalize on positive events
6- Focus on personal strengths
7- Make and pursue obtainable goals
