Happiness And Health - How Are They Connected

Did you know that happy people are less likely to get sick? This statement is backed by studies made by some experts in the field of medicine and psychology. Hormones or neurotransmitters called serotonin are present when you're happy. They are released when you're exercising or doing something enjoyable. As they grow in number inside your body, your immune system gets stronger.

Your genetic makeup has a big impact on the level of happiness you live by each day. Although genetic predestination can affect a person’s happy meter, experts attest that even the gloomiest person in the world can learn how to be happy if he is determined to do so.

Getting around with happy and positive people is a great way to start when improving your happiness meter. Attitude is contagious. It can lift up or pull someone down. Next, think of activities or things that can make you feel relaxed and happy. Would that be whole day in the spa? Taking time off and spending time with loved ones? Be sure to do that thing that makes you happy. Lastly, don’t forget to follow-up. Happiness is a daily decision you must choose.
