    Reba, as a legs model, you are also in public relations. Photographers and others in the industry chose happy people to work with. A University of Pittsburgh study led by Hilary Tindle, MD, MPH, wrote that optimists adopt healthier habits because they put themselves in control while pessimists feel as if they’re doomed no matter what they do.
