7 Days To A Happier You
(BlackDoctor.org) — Wanna be happy? Did you know that happiness can be improved and developed, just like a muscle?
Here’s BlackDoctor.org’s seven-day strategy to becoming a happier you:
Day 1. Watch a funny movie.
Medical studies indicate that laughter boosts levels of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, and suppresses levels of the stress hormone epinephrine. Being too serious and analytical is another form of stress, and laughter, as well trying to at least sometimes not take yourself or frustrating situations too seriously can relax your face…and your soul. Have you noticed that it’s almost impossible to worry when you laugh?
Day 2. Pop a vitamin.
Even if you eat well, you should still consider taking a vitamin or supplement as a backup, if necessary. For example, if you’re a woman, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re getting in enough calcium, which helps support strong bones, magnesium, which helps to offset the constipation that can occur with some women when they take calcium supplements, and vitamin D, which increases the absorption of calcium into the bones. Ask your doctor for advice about what specific vitamins your body needs, and, if possible, look for vitamins that are chelated, which makes them easier for your body to dissolve and absorb.
