People who are happier in their daily lives have healthier levels of key body chemicals
than those who muster few positive feelings, a new study suggests. This means happier
people may have healthier hearts and cardiovascular systems, possibly cutting their
risk of diseases like diabetes.
Previous studies have shown that depression is associated with health problems
compared to average emotional states. But few studies have looked at the effects
of positive moods on health. Now, researchers at University College London, UK,
have linked everyday happiness with healthier levels of important body chemicals,
such as the stress hormone cortisol.
"This study showed that whether people are happy or less happy in their everyday
lives appears to have important effects on the markers of biological function known
to be associated with disease," says clinical psychologist Jane Wardle, one of the
research team. "Perhaps laughter is the best medicine," she adds.
When you can be joyful at the worst times in your life it will be the result of
being happier and healthy.
Take the control of your feelings and be happy!
