Can you feel it?
Why we need to make happiness a health priority
We all know that how we feel emotionally can affect us physically – consider the toll stress can take on your body. According to recent research published in Emotion, people who experience a broad range of positive emotions (that is, excitement, awe, strength, happiness and calm), have the lowest levels of internal inflammation, potentially leading to a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases. The upshot, we should all make happiness a health priority.
