5 Myths About Health and Happiness - And What They Mean to You
Our health has a direct impact on how we live and how we relate to other people. It also affects our emotions: If we are hale and hearty, we might have a sense that nothing can stop us from doing what we really enjoy, indoors or out – we’re capable of unlimited joy! And if we have an illness, whether a mundane cold or a complex, chronic condition, we might feel that we’re unable to fully enjoy the activities and people that we love – and we wonder if we’ll ever be happy.
