Health is Happiness

Updated: Apr 24, 2019

International Day of Happiness, celebrated March 20 every year, is an initiative by the United Nations to inspire global happiness by fostering peace and harmony across the planet. The idea was proposed by UN special advisor Jayme Illien and was subsequently adopted through a unanimous consensus of all 193-member states. Happiness, in a broader sense of the term, goes beyond the idea of merely cracking up to jokes or wholeheartedly indulging in merriment. It’s a state of mental, physical and spiritual contentment without compromising on one’s ideas. A natural feeling of being at peace that comes with a clear conscience, allowing one to comfortably drift to sleep at the end of every single day. With true happiness, comes great physical wellbeing; and its remarkable how major illnesses can be safely evaded by simply being happy. Here are a few important benefits that one can reap through happiness.

Being happy safeguards our cardiac health by drowning stress and anxiety. It’s also the single most effective way to boost our immune system, thereby developing tremendous resistance against a plethora of health hazards. Happiness cultivates a relaxed aura within us, making us more receptive and alert to our surroundings. It also helps maintain a calm disposition that aids in reaching rational decisions amidst challenging circumstances. Immunity against sensations of pain, too, is a rewarding reality that can be attained through genuine happiness.
