Taking the glass half full approach to life could help you live longer!

That's according to a new Boston University study of more than 70-thousand adults.

It showed the most optimistic people were 50 to 70 percent more likely to reach 85 years old than their less positive peers.

Experts say optimistic people tend to have healthier habits, and can bounce back from stress more effectively.
