Happiness Is Good Health

Life can be full of excitement, full of mysteries. However, there are a number of things in our lives that we never think of compromising. Good health is surely one of the most important things in life.

In today's hectic world, where stress and competition exists side by side, it is indeed not that easy to always exists in an optimistic, happy and healthy state of mind. There are various ways to try and keep yourself positive in your thinking, thus ending up more happy and healthy.

First and foremost, having the right attitude is essential. Tell yourself that you are happy and always look at the bright side of things. Do not always jump to the worst conclusion. It might help to write down the list of things you have to do the next day,  just before you retire for the night. You have better control of your daily activities which makes you feel more in control of your life. As we all know, better control means more confidence which translates to being more happy.

It is better to get yourself involve in some activities everyday. An idle mind tends to make you moody. Meeting up with friends, going for your daily walk, having a hobby, will keep you in a more positive frame of mind.

Smiling is contagious. Smile at a stranger, you get a smile back and that is indeed nice. A smiling face denotes happiness. Surround yourself with smiling faces and you will surely feel happy. Just think of a happy baby smiling at you. Nice feeling?

When you are happy, experts say you have a stronger immune system. You do not catch a cold easily. You have a stronger resistance to catching the common cold as well as other common illness.

Of course, having the right frame of mental health needs to be followed by the right diet and exercise to be healthy. You would surely have heard it before. Less oil, less sugar, less salt, less red meat, more vegetables and fruits as well as cold water fish rich in omega 3 for your healthy heart. This should not be too difficult to implement.

Getting your daily dose of exercise after a hard day's work might need more motivation. However, where there is a will, there is a way.

So, keep your mental health positive and you are on your way to a much healthier you.
