Study Says: Girlfriends Are Key To Women's Optimism

As women, we all know that girlfriends are an important part of our lives. But we may not have realized just how important. A new study finds that women are more optimistic than men and it is largely due to our girlfriends.

According to a recent article in USA Today, ".....25% of women ages 45 to 55 give themselves a 10 out of 10 on optimism about their future, finds a Gallup-Healthways daily poll of Americans' well-being. These women have a sense of meaning and engagement. They love learning new things. And they expect in five years to be at the top of a ladder of well-being."

The article also states: "The most optimistic women spend about six hours a day in social interaction. Some of that time may be with a friend at work, with family, a husband or children, or with a partner, a love interest or neighbors. But girlfriends are the bedrock. The most optimistic women have an inner circle of anywhere from four to a dozen friends who 'have their back' and will drop everything to help in a crisis."

So if you get flack for chatting with your girlfriends too much, just tell them you are working on increasing your optimism :).
