Be Happy-It’s Good For You

As the song says, “Don’t worry, be happy.” Did you know that happiness is good for you and it’s not about what life hands you, but what you think about life in general. If you go through life feeling cheated instead of blessed or look on the negative side, you’re sure to be unhappy. When you look at the bleak side or worry, you’re inviting unhappiness in to stay. To quote the song again, “In every life we have some trouble, When you worry you make it double, Don’t worry, be happy-it’s good for you” Okay, it’s good for you isn’t part of the song, but it should be.

Happiness can help your heart.

There have been many studies about the link between heart health and happiness, but one study published in 2010 showed a direct link to happiness and heart problems. A study of 2,000 Canadians showed that people people rated as being angry and frustrated at work later had the highest incidence of coronary disease with those who were happier having a 22 percent lower risk of having it. Other studies show that happiness also reduces stress, which also lowers the risk of heart disease.

Happiness can boost your immune system and bring other benefits.

Studies show that it can lengthen your life, boost your immune system and even help relieve aches and pains. When you’re involved in life in a positive manner, it even extends your life and will help you stay vital into your senior years. Happiness gives you the incentive to keep going, keep trying and treat yourself better, never quitting or giving up no matter what the odds because you believe in yourself and are optimistic about the outcome.

One way to lift your spirits is to exercise regularly.

Exercising burns off the hormones created by stress that can cause mental fogginess, illness and sometimes depression. It stimulates the brain to replace those hormones with ones that make you feel safe, secure and happier. You’ll feel stress disappear and your spirits lifting every time you workout. Eating healthy is another way to help you on your way to happiness. Sugary foods may provide instant energy, but it also drops just as fast as it rises and to even lower depths. That can agitate you and make you very unhappy. Eating healthy helps to stabilize your blood sugar levels.

While happiness can help relieve pain, pain relief can also help happiness. Not only do we help with pain management without the use of prescription drugs, exercising can help lower pain and even prevent it.

You’ll have more energy than ever before and be able to enjoy all the good things in life when you workout regularly and eat healthy.

Exercise aids in the getting a quality good night’s sleep and that can make your day’s less stressful and happier.

You’ll look good and feel good when you eat healthier, become fitter and exercise on a regular basis. Looking good and especially feeling good add to your happiness.

The most loving gift you can give yourself or a loved one is to enjoy a healthy Valentine’s Day. You can do that by providing a path to fitness. Whether you use a personal trainer or join a group run by a personal trainer, an exercise program is a must if you want to be at your best. Don’t worry about being left behind if you’re out of shape, trainers design personalized programs. A trainer will find out if you have any special needs, such as bad knees or a back problem that might require a modification to an exercise, learn your goals and then identify your level of fitness. Only then does the trainer design a program that will challenge you, but still be within your capabilities.

Not only do we help you live healthier with a program of exercise, we also help people overcome the burden that pain brings into their life. We provide a healthy alternative to pain pills that won’t just mask the problem but cure it. Pain relief is one of the nicest Valentine’s Day gifts you can give to anyone, including yourself.

Eating healthier will change your life and bring a new appreciation for food.

If you’re existing on junk or highly processed foods, you’ll be amazed at how delicious real food is. Whole food, foods closest to its natural state is not only healthy and tasty, it’s also far lower in calories. Too often we consume foods out of habit or are addicted to the sugar in them that give our bodies a boost of energy and then a sudden plunge to exhaustion only to require another sugar hit. Making small changes, such as substituting an apple for a candy bar, having healthy snacks ready between meals and cooking differently can start you on the road to healthier eating.

When you combine healthy eating with a program of exercise, not only will you lose weight and keep it from returning, but also have many other benefits.

When you eat healthy, you’re giving your body all the nutrients it requires, plus also lowering your caloric intake. Regular exercise burns extra calories, while building muscle tissue that burns extra calories, essentially boosting your metabolism in the process. That means you’ll attack fat on two levels. Exercising regularly also reduces the risk of serious diseases, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and even cancer.

When you exercise, you’ll sleep better at night. A good night’s rest has many benefits and can be a real blessing for anyone with problems sleeping.

You’ll feel fantastic with energy to spare. The body is so amazing. The more energy you use, the more you have available.

You’ll look years younger by exercising more and eating healthy. Your skin will glow, you’ll have a bounce to your step and your body will look fabulous.
