“Happiness is the meaning of life, the aim of life, the entire purpose, and the end of life. A recent study shows that being happy not only makes you feel better but also offers a lot of possible benefits for your wellbeing.
Happiness encourages a healthy lifestyle. It could help to strengthen your immune system and protect your heart”.
Happiness is good and gives us a sense of hope, an attitude of taking on the planet, and a contagious positivity. A recent study shows that everyone attempts to find happiness in three ways: to do good to others, doing things, you are good at. And do things that are good for you. Also, the optimistic ones are the happiest in all. Choose to be optimistic, it feels better. (Dalai Lama XIV)
Happy people have a healthy lifestyle:
Happiness encourages a wide variety of lifestyle practices essential to health. Happy people eat healthier diets, more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Fruit and vegetable-rich diets generally have been related to a variety of health benefits, including lower rates of diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
The research was performed on 7000 adults which showed that 47% of adults that are happy in their life and reason behind this is they are eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
Recent research, happiness can reduce cardiac disease risk and boost the immune system:
Through health behavior as well as immune and cardiovascular systems, subjective health can exert its consequences. Happiness can protect the heart, which is a major risk factor for cardiac disease, by decreasing blood pressure. For overall health, a healthy immune system is important.
Research has demonstrated that being happier can help maintain a strong immune system Although scientists still discuss and debate whether happiness affects health the most, they are capable of doing so.
Researchers can one day learn how to monitor the subjective well-being of individuals; just as other factors are currently being evaluated. People should also take their health responsibility by developing happy mental habits.
Well-being sentiments of people combine other known health factors, such as not smoking and exercise. Prof. Ed Diener, co-author of the Applied Psychology said that:
“Scores of studies show that our levels of happiness versus stress and depression can influence our cardiovascular health, our immune system strength to fight off diseases, and our ability to heal from injuries.”
