Although being late is admittedly a bad habit which can rightfully annoy others, it’s interesting to read research which states that being late has a range of traits which can prolong life.
After all, people who are late are optimistic about what they can get done in a limited amount of time. They truly believe it’s possible to take a shower, blow dry their hair, grab a quick Frappucino, and still make it on time to meet you at 1 pm for lunch.
“Optimism helps people cope with disease and recover from surgery.”
Plus, frequently people are late because they’re caught up in an activity which makes them lose track of time.
“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.”
They are in “flow.”
