The Power of Happiness
Feeling positive is a reflection of your state of mind but it translates into every part of your daily life, from your health to your outlook, and even your success in daily tasks. The simplest way to boost your happiness is to make sure that you laugh every day.
Laughter has been linked with an array of positive reactions, including relaxing your muscles, expanding your lungs, boosting circulation, and even improving your immune system.
Perhaps most importantly, it also increases the release of endorphins into your body, that’s the substance that reduces pain and makes you feel good.
It’s not hard to laugh every day if you try and it will help your health.
Happiness is a state of mind but it can be difficult to maintain a positive state of mind in a stressful society. The sad truth is that we live in a world that demands instant gratification. But, it’s incredibly stressful ensuring instant gratification needs can be met.
That’s why you need to learn to relax. When you’re stressed your body releases the hormone cortisol. This prepares your body for fight or flight and stops the production of many other hormones.
This is not good for your long-term health which is why you need to take time out to relax.
You’ll find yoga, meditation, or simply reading a book, are all effective ways of relaxing and removing yourself from the stress of daily life.
When you relax you’ll feel happier and reap the benefits that go with happiness.
The Problem with Diets
We’ve called this the Wellness Diet but, it’s actually a series of lifestyle choices.
The problem with diets is that they are generally restrictive and extremely difficult to stick to in the long term.
But, a few simple lifestyle changes can make a huge difference to your eating habits, health, well-being, and even your sleep quality.
Let’s face it, you’re not what you eat, you’re what you eat most of the time.
Everyone can enjoy a slice of pizza from time to time but eating it every day is not good for you.
If you want to improve your health and wellness you need to consider what changes you can make that are healthier but still enjoyable. For example, ditch the daily French fries and have a salad instead with your meat.
You’ll be surprised at how much difference it will make.
