Being happy may improve both the quality and longevity of your life. Many of the chronic diseases we see in industrialized countries can be attributed to the stress that we encounter daily in our society.
Since happiness is something we all strive for, behavioral scientists have spent a lot of time studying what makes us happy (and what doesn’t). Negative thoughts are ruining your life.
In our society, for various reasons, we seem to have forgotten how to be happy because we are too busy being angry at the world. Studies show that people who engage in positive thinking have better health. We all know that optimistic people seem to enjoy life more. They smile frequently because they know where and how to seek happiness.
Positive Emotions Are Good for Your Health
According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, a negative attitude can affect the way you think. In addition, if you already have a pre-existing health condition, the effects can be drastic. Research has shown that even a small amount of negativity can harm our health. It can weaken the immune system, and even make us more susceptible to a heart attack or stroke.
