We've all heard the expression, "fake it till you make it," but it's not something I've ever considered an especially scientific strategy. Well, I have a confession: I was wrong.

Check out this infographic from Happify (a website devoted to scientifically researching, explaining, and facilitating happiness for all) for the scientific scoop on how making a habit of optimism can improve your life. Spoiler alert: It's absolutely a change worth making.
