A happy day to each and every one of you. Today I want to discuss why happiness really is so important in our lives. You may have heard that happiness affects your health. Have you ever wondered whether this is really true? I wanted to know the answer myself, so I have done some research to find out what happens to the body when we are happy. Clearly, I am not a scientist (never my strong point), so you can interpret this in your own way. I was fascinated by what I found, so I thought you may be too.
What Being Happy Does to the Body
Maybe it’s obvious. Happiness does have a positive impact on our bodies. I discovered that it has been proven; the happier people are, the happier their heart health is. My reaction to this is to carry a heart full of love and all will be well.
There are a few of the other ways being happy can affect us. Being happy could help you live a longer life. Even if you chose not to believe this, then wouldn’t it be better to grow old and look back at a life full of happiness than one full of worry? Let that sink in..
If you take a more positive approach, your immune system will be stronger and you will recover from an illness quicker. In my eyes, this is related to the power of the mind. If you are ill and you picture being better, then you will attract the health to yourself, hence a recovery.
The Glass is Half Full
Always remember to keep your focus on the positive aspects of your life. None of us have a real reason not to be happy, so just “Let it Be” and try to stay optimistic as much as you possibly can. You can shift your focus onto the positives, you just have to want to do so.
Of course, happiness means different things to different people, however, the end result of being happy is all the same. The things you think and feel (your mind) are connected to your body, so in a way your body is reacting to your emotions. Therefore, the happier your thoughts, the happier your body.
Most importantly, happiness comes from the inside. No matter how many physical things you do, they are not going to “make you happy”. I believe being happy comes from within your soul. Yes, there are certain things which can make you feel even greater and heighten your state of happiness, but at the end of the day, happiness is a feeling not a thought.
I hope this has been inspirational for you and thank you for reading.
