Happiness is a broad term that describes the experience of positive emotions, such as joy, contentment and satisfaction. Emerging research shows that being happier doesn’t just make you feel better — it actually brings a host of potential health benefits. HEALTH BENEFITS OF HAPPINESS ***Being happy promotes a range of lifestyle habits that are important for overall health. Happy people tend to eat healthier diets, with higher intakes of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. ***Keeps your immune system strong, which fight off the common cold and chest infections. It may be due to the impact of happiness on the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which regulates your immune system, hormones, digestion and stress levels. ***Reduces stress levels.Stress increases levels of the hormone cortisol, which can cause weight gain, disturbed sleep and high blood pressure. Happy people tend to produce lower levels of cortisol in response to stressful situations. ***Being happy may protect the heart by reducing blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease. ***Happiness brings longevity. The risk of death over the 30-year study period was 14% higher in unhappy individuals compared to their happier counterparts. ***It reduces the perception of pain. It appears to be particularly effective in chronic pain conditions such as arthritis and painful inflammatory conditions. ***What’s more, being happier may also improve sleep habits and practices, which is important for concentration, productivity, exercise performance and maintaining a healthy weight.
