Why Should You Be Happy? 
Do you think that wanting to be happy is a waste of time, foolish and unrealistic?
If so you are wrong!
Being a happy person will help you stop falling ill, help you recover from illness and help you to have a longer, fuller life. Yes, being happy will keep you healthy. Nobody wants to have a longer life if it is full of misery, aches and petty illnesses.
If You Want To Be Happy
Research keeps showing more and more evidence that having a happy outlook will help you to be  healthy AND happy.
Here is just one example. Two researchers, Thuston and Kubzansky and studied 6,000 men and women for 20 years.
They reported  that : “….-a sense of enthusiasm, hopefulness, engagement of life, and the ability to face life’s stresses with emotional balance  reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
Happiness Is Health Is Happiness
I’ve been writing about happiness bringing good health so far. Let’s look at the other side of the coin. Being healthy makes you feel happy.
That’s right! Being healthy makes you happy AND being happy makes you healthy, as we’ve seen above.
I have many articles on my blog that discuss the effects that  exercise and keeping fit have on your happiness level. You don’t have don’t have to become a fitness freak to get this bonus. Scientists who have studied the effect that exercise has on feelings of well being came up with this fact. If you are feeling low ten (yes, ten) minutes of exercise will change your mood. There is no need to kill yourself either. Brisk walking will  do the trick.
It will also lower your cholesterol level,  reduce emotional stress and improve your blood pressure. But let me add, although you need only light exercise to show big improvements  in  your life, the more you exercise the happier you will become.
What Should You Do?
Fitness and happiness obviously play a big part in what would be a perfect lifestyle. So start building them up until they are a part of your daily life. Become one of The Happy People! It’s FREE! Just follow this blog at: https://happinessguru.wordpress.com
And, PLEASE, share the ideas you find here with your friends. Be Happy!
Love, Wealth and Happiness,
Tommy
