Happiness does not heal, but happiness protects against falling ill.

If everyone could stay in an upbeat attitude then I guess we will all live longer and healthier. Life's stresses push us to do things that we think will relieve us but in the end they become a burden than real help.

"Happiness does not lengthen the life of seriously ill people, but it does prolong the life of healthy people. Happiness appears to protect against falling ill. One of the mechanisms behind that effect seems to be that chronic unhappiness causes stress, which on its turn reduces immune response."
