This Exciting News Is Making Us Healthier

There are documented health benefits associated with happiness. The "exciting" news listed below will undoubtedly have a profound effect on many of us.

According to Positive Psychology, these are six health benefits associated with happiness:

  • Improved Heart Health
  • Ability to Combat Stress More Effectively
  • A Stronger Immune System
  • Overall Healthier Lifestyle
  • Can Help Reduce Pain
  • Increased Life Longevity

Personally, I agree with every one of those bullet points. It's been proven individuals who are happier have consistently lower cortisol levels (stress hormone) in their blood. In addition, research indicates being happy can support a strong immune system. I can recall reading studies on that point while I was in high school back in the 1980s.
