POS­I­TIVE PSY­CHOL­OGY The busi­ness trav­eller is at greater risk than most of stress, fa­tigue, de­pres­sion and burnout. A 2016 Book­ing.com sur­vey of 4,555 fre­quent fly­ers found that 93 per cent were wrung-out by busi­ness travel. In 2017, pos­i­tive psy­chol­ogy – es­sen­tially the science of hap­pi­ness – will be a pop­u­lar buzz phrase of the mo­ment. Gain­ing an un­der­stand­ing of our own men­tal health can help us to make bet­ter life choices. Think­ing pos­i­tively can even im­prove our phys­i­cal health – last year, a study of 70,000 women in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Epi­demi­ol­ogy found that op­ti­mists were less likely to get fatal cancer, heart dis­ease, lung con­di­tions or stroke in re­tire­ment.
