“Happiness is SO underrated.”
“What makes one person happy is often different from the next, but one common theme prevails, which is that being happy is associated with better health. Happy people tend to eat healthier, exercise more, and get better sleep than those who are stressed out or depressed – all habits associated with health.
But it’s very much a case of “the chicken or the egg.” It could be that happiness itself is the impetus for healthy lifestyle, which in turn leads to health. It could also be the case that following a healthy lifestyle, regardless of mental state, leads to better health, and that good health makes it easier to be happy.”
