Contrary to popular belief, being chronically late is actually a benefit.

A recent study has found that those that find it difficult to be on time are actually enhancing their mental and physical health. “Many late people tend to be both optimistic and unrealistic,” says author Diana DeLonzor.

“Optimism helps people cope with disease and recover from surgery,” says a recent study. “Even more impressive is the impact of a positive outlook on overall health and longevity.

Research tells us 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.”
