I read an article claiming that mild dehydration is linked to pessimism. "Is Your Glass Half Full?" the title asks.

Seven seconds after reading the article, I went to the kitchen, filled a 16-ounce glass with tap water and six ice cubes, paused for about 14 seconds, and dumped it all down the drain. So, it took me twice as long to be pessimistic than it did to be optimistic, and I didn't even have to drink any of the water to achieve the result. And for that I'm very happy. There's a lesson to be learned here. Or not.
