“Happiness is the new success. Health is the new wealth.”
The most important thing in life is not money, as people might say. Happiness and health are the most important of all and above all. Life is nothing when you are not happy or healthy. You are not living your life to the fullest if you are unhappy or unhealthy.
You might have heard numerous quotes like- “Health is wealth” and “Laughter is the best medicine”. Well! They are absolutely true.
Happiness and health are just a state of mind. If you think you are happy, you are happy. If you think you are healthy, you are healthy. They are just a matter of your thoughts. For instance, you know, you make your thoughts and your thoughts make you.
If you are a happy person, you are healthy too. It is only the unhappiness of a person that makes him unhealthy. Happiness and health are always interdependent.
As people grow up, they have stress and depression problems. They keep a fake smile on their faces. This stress and depression is the root of all diseases and unhealthiness. Stress and depression interrupt in the proper working of your mind. Your mind then is not able to keep your body healthy.
So the question is not how to be happy. The true question is how to subtract stress and depression from your life and add happiness.
