Happiness Can Stave Off Aging

Happiness Can Stave Off Aging

Be Proactive About Your Use

Happiness doesn’t just affect your emotional well-being. It can also affect your health. When you’re happy, not only do you feel better all over, but you can actually stave off aging.


Of course, making sure that you live a lifestyle that promotes good health does help you win the fight against aging. Plus, a healthy lifestyle can make you feel better emotionally – especially if you exercise – because exercise boosts your endorphin level, which is the feel good hormone. 

Health and
happiness are linked together like an unending circle. When you know that
you’re doing what you can to be healthy, this impacts your mood. You feel
lighter, energized and happy.


The benefit to
doing what you can to feel good about yourself and be happy can give you more
health benefits. When you’re happy and you have a positive outlook in life,
you’ll take better care of yourself physically.


When a person
is not happy, negative emotions can affect whether or not they’re proactive
with their health. So then they end up feeling bad physically, which pours
right back into feeling bad emotionally.


The key is to
spend time every day doing things that you really like to do. This might be
exercise, a hobby, or spending time with friends or family. When you do
activities or take action that makes you feel happy, this boosts your health
and fights back against aging.


Whether or not
you’re happy can impact all areas of your life. Happiness makes it easier to do
whatever your day to day tasks are. You’ll look forward to the mornings instead
of dreading them.


You’ll have pep
in your step rather than dreading the dawning of each new day. When you’re
happier, you tend to invest in yourself because happiness is also tied in with
a higher level of self-esteem.


Happiness leads
people to be more active than people who feel down. This mood can continue as
you grow older and you’ll make choices that will lend itself toward the kind of
lifestyle that’s proactive against aging, too.


People who
aren’t happy tend to move slower. They don’t move as fast going through day to
day activities or when walking. The moods that someone feels tends to affect
how they walk and the speed of the walk.


As you age,
your physical ability slows down, but people who make it a choice to be
proactive about happiness don’t lose their speed as quickly as people who
aren’t happy.


Studies have
shown that people who are happy in life have a longer life expectancy. Better
health is found among people who are well off financially, have a good
education, are in a committed relationship and have a job or career they enjoy.
Worse health is found in people who aren’t dismal about life.
