There is nothing more important to your happiness

factor than taking proper care of your body.

 

There is nothing better than a good night’s sleep to

make you feel better. Well, maybe a perfect diet,

proportioned in fat, carbohydrates, proteins and

calories. Oh, I almost forgot the benefit of a good

exercise program will do wonders for your health and

well-being.

 

Taking care of your health is an integral part of

taking care of your mental well-being. It’s hard to

feel happy if you don’t get proper nutrition, sleep or

exercise, no matter how hard you try to keep a

positive attitude. If you don’t feel rested or fueled,

happiness is going to be just beyond your reach.

 

Take time to get the rest you need. Go to bed earlier

than usual, but don’t disturb your natural rhythm too

much. Eat smaller meals, but more frequently, to keep

your blood sugar levels regular. Eat fresh foods; lots

of fresh fruit and vegetables will help keep your

energy levels up, and make sure to include some

proteins for long-term energy.

 

Exercise tells your brain to release “happy hormones”,

called endorphins. Regular exercise that makes you

breathe just a little bit hard helps you to burn fat

and to get the added benefit of the endorphins that

give you a burst of energy and a sense of well-being.

 

Take control of your own body as a way of making

yourself happier. By making better food choices,

getting plenty of quality rest and getting more

exercise is a sure-fire way of increasing you “happy

factor”.
