Healthy Lifestyle: Be Happy!

If you remember your philosophy lessons, Cicero once said that "diseases of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body." So to be truly healthy, heal the diseases of your soul - be happy and work to be happy. Be truly happy and make your soul healthy with the following tips:

1. Give and s

Call it karmic pay-off, but it is the giver that benefits more from the giving than the receiver. It is truly better to give than to receive. One study found out that people who volunteered for two or more organizations are 44% less likely to die early compared with those who didn't. Volunteering even beat out exercising four times a week (30%) and going to religious services (29%) when it came to promoting longevity.

2. Rejuvenate your spirit.

Whether it is a coffee break, reading a funny comic or watching a feel-good movie, rejuvenating your spirit goes a long way in making you healthy. This quick routine can help you hit the reset button on body, mind, and spirit. It also keeps stress at bay and makes you more productive.
