To folks who consider happiness as a “nice to have” extravagance or something that comes after a lifetime of sacrifice toward achieving a goal. Happiness isn’t just about feeling good, it’s about the joy we feel while striving after our potential. By electing modest and cheerful habits that take no longer than combing your hair, you can boost your mood and raise your happiness.
This elevated morale results in a healthier, more productive you.
The high-tech revolution allows us to have information at a rapid pace. We’ve been able to understand the human brain better than ever. Happiness is such an incredible advantage in our life. When the human brain is positive, our intelligence rises; we stop diverting resources to think about anxiety.
Positive thoughts and attitudes can prompt changes in your body that strengthen your immune system, boost positive emotions, decrease pain associated with chronic illness. Evidence even suggests that happiness, optimism, life satisfaction, and other positive psychological attributes are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. It is scientifically revealed that happiness can go as far as to alter your genes. Researchers at UCLA showed that people with a deep sense of happiness and well-being had lower levels of inflammatory gene expression and stronger antiviral and antibody responses.
Most people keep waiting on happiness, putting off happiness until they’re successful or until they achieve some goal, which means we limit both happiness and success. This model clearly exhibits major faults. The most important aspect for today’s society, is to engage your brain in ways that challenge it. This builds a pattern of positive self-affirmation, which leads to happiness and the desire to repeat the process.
