Why is happiness essential to health?

In our modern society, negative information and bad mood prevail.

To a certain extent, the mass media also contribute to this, which, in order to attract more public attention, focus attention on the negative element in the coverage of each piece of information. It is an absolutely indisputable fact that the bad impresses people.

It is natural that disturbing events happen every day, both on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria and in other countries around the world.

Also, each of us may experience a personal misfortune to which we cannot remain indifferent, much less react positively.

In such situations temporary negativity and bad mood are absolutely justified and completely understandable.

However, there are times when there is a tendency in society to seek information related to negative facts and circumstances.

This social need is a kind of disguised pleasure in the failure of others.

It is expressed in a constant and persistent expectation for a dramatic story to unfold, both in the workplace and in the entertainment industry.

This is precisely why articles and reports about dramatic and scandalous facts and circumstances surrounding the lives of the rich and famous have always enjoyed the greatest popularity.

To make sure of this, it is enough to look at the most read publications in the largest Bulgarian electronic media.

Sarcasm, rudeness, gossip, gossip and constant complaints have become a daily routine for many people. But let’s not forget that everyone chooses how and in what environment to live and develop.

Although most people often laugh at negativity and a negative attitude, at times it is given too much attention, even glorifying it or its opposite, negation, which can to have a detrimental effect on health.

Constantly bad mood and a person’s conscious choice to remain in such a situation can become the reason for the development of inflammatory processes, rise in blood sugar levels and disorders of heart function.

Arrhythmias are most often observed, which, upon diagnosis, worsen, as they become a source of constant anxiety.

Scientists from the University of Texas note that exposure to constant stress can cause chronic inflammation and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Bad vs. good mood

Scientists point out that there are people who are constantly in a bad mood and this is their natural state of mind. For them, the glass is always half empty.

But such negativity causes brain function to slow down and causes depression. Abnormalities are observed in areas of the brain responsible for stress regulation and the body’s sense of well-being in persistently negative people.

On the other hand, when a person is cheerful, his organism is transformed. With positive thinking, the health of the brain is improved by not only forming new synapses in the prefrontal cortex, but also facilitating the creative solving of all kinds of problems.

In fact, research shows that more positive people live longer than those who have a more negative outlook on life. The longer life of positive people is mainly due to a stronger immune system and excellent relationships with others.
