Is Your Heart Happy?

Could happiness lead to a happy heart? A study by the Harvard School of Public Health revealed that older men with a more optimistic outlook had a reduced risk of coronary heart disease, in essence reducing their risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Although the study suggests optimism may reduce your risk of heart diseases even if you had poor health habits in the past, those who reported having a greater sense of well-being or a healthier lifestyle tend to be more optimistic.

So, now the question is how do you create optimism? Well, here are a few tips on how to grow happiness:

  • Balance is key. It’s important to challenge yourself but as best you can, try not to overload your plate. Spend time your loved ones when you can and don’t take anything for granted.
  • Just as Lisette always says, live in each moment. We are taught to always work a little harder and to strive for a little more but being present and happy with where we are is just as important.
  • Live healthy. When your body is well-rested, strong and fueled with the right foods, you feel more alert and ready to take on the day. Simply starting your day with a nutritious breakfast can make all the difference.
