There’s conclusive scientific evidence that proves that our moods and outlook on life affect our health. Happy people live up to 10 years longer than unhappy people and optimistic people have a 77% lower risk of heart disease tan pessimistic people.
This being so, what can we do to raise our level of happiness and maintain an optimistic view of life despite life’s challenges?
We can express gratitude on a regular basis. Studies show that grateful people are happier, more energetic, more hopeful, and more forgiving. They are also less likely to be depressed, lonely or sick.
Begin your day by expressing gratitude for the day ahead and end your day by giving thanks for another day well spent.
