There is no way to happiness — happiness IS the way. ~ Buddha ~
Happiness is contagious, happier people help others around them to become happier too. Another reason why happiness is important is that the link between stress and illness is very well known. Happy, positive feelings change the chemical make up of our bodies, producing chemicals that enhance immunity, cell repair, and building strength. Happiness is the opposite of stress. Being happy yourself is one of the best things you can do to help other people be happy, too!
