Feeling happy is linked to longer longevity, stronger immunity and better health as we get older but how exactly do we achieve this degree of happiness?
What makes us happy varies from one person to another but it’s something that a lot of us feel is lacking in our lives. Lots of things can give us short term bursts of happiness but it’s long term happiness that can be much more evasive.
We often place a strong emphasis on the people around us and the material things that we have in the belief that this will make us happy but this can mean that the amount of happiness we feel is based on things we can’t control.
If you can start to see happiness and wellbeing as the result of your mind and body working together in tandem, you can begin to see it as something that you can improve by looking within yourself and not relying on outside factors.
