People have long known that a positive mindset can keep us healthy. When we live our lives with optimism and hope, we do have a better and longer life. We don’t need science to confirm that.
A positive attitude has all kinds of physiological and healing benefits !
There is a clear connection between what happens in the brain and what happens in the body. Multiple studies from many prominent medical centers including John Hopkins University and Harvard School of Public Health, as well as the National Institutes of Health.
Scientists proved that a positive outlook has numerous health benefits like lower blood pressure, less heart disease, better weight control, and healthier blood sugar levels. Positivity can boost the immune system and prevent depression.
In a study done in 2013, Danish scientists discovered that heart disease patients who practiced a positive attitude were 58% more likely to live an extra 5 years and live better during that time.
Positivity helps your body to fight off viruses and diseases by boosting the function of immune cells. It also helps reducing a possibility of getting cancer. As we know, cancer mostly grows in non-oxygenated bodies and laughing sends more oxygen in your blood!
