HAPPY PEOPLE LESS LIKEY TO SUFFER HEART ATTACKS

I saw an article about a study that said happy people are less likely to have a heart attack. I zeroed in on this like a laser. It seems that happy people take better care of themselves and unhappy folks are often overwhelmed with stress and depression which are bad for your heart.

Lately no one seems happy. I’m sure the economy is a big factor as well as the polarization we see and hear flowing out of Washington and our televisions. Our mood effects are relationships, work, and now we learn our health. We’ve got to break this ugly cycle. Think about the impact on our workplace. The article went on to say that you need to recharge your batteries or else your heart won’t be able to take it. Well, that’s all I needed to hear, I’m going to relax the rest of the day and try to have some fun.  You should too.

  1. Rick, a little known fact: When we’re having fun, relaxed, laughing, our blood vessels expand, we get more oxygen to the brain, and we’re smarter. Conversely, of course, when we’re stressed out those blood vessels squinch up, we get less oxygen to the brain, and we’re not very smart. Your comments also make me think of a poem I saw many years ago, by an elderly woman who said she spent no time at all thinking about how she should have worked harder, but thinking about how she should have had more fun. Best, Susan
