Doesn't everyone want to be healthy in both mind and body? 

We go to spas, yoga retreats and beach destinations to relax and rejuvenate our whole being.

However, each person has the power to become healthier by looking inward and changing how they view life. Statistics tell us that human beings who see the glass of life as half full rather than empty are "45 percent less likely to die of heart disease than pessimists," according to Good Life magazine.

Have you ever wondered how you can change your viewpoint to include more optimism? "Focus on kindness," states Good Life. Write down the various ways others have demonstrated kindness and generosity towards you. Ponder each instance then allow yourself to feel the heartfelt emotion of receiving an act of kindness.

The positive emotions awakened in you will fuel your desire to display an act of generosity toward another person.This breaks the cycle of negativity and brings about optimism along with better health. Now that is something to be truly happy about!
