You may have read the news stories or even seen it on social media that happiness can lead to a healthier and longer life!

Being happy is not just associated with improving the quality of your life, according to researchers, it can even increase the quantity of your life, too.

CNN recently reported, “older people were up to 35% less likely to die during the five-year study if they reported feeling happy, excited, and content on a typical day.”

Here’s how to banish negative emotions such as sadness, anger, stress, and anxiety to live happier and longer!

Be Social

Connecting with friends and family are key to living a happy and healthy life. Make sure to invest time in staying in touch with loved ones, perhaps even join a group doing something that interests you, or get involved in community events. At Home Care Preferred we believe that everyone should live an independent healthy life at home and we encourage outings with loved ones and time spent doing activities you enjoy.

Stay Active

Staying mobile and active will play an important role in your health to keep the body and mind in shape. If you’re looking for ways to stay active check out this blog.

Learning New Things

Learning a new language or even challenging yourself to a new goal can help to boost your confidence and will help you focus on your mind on the task at hand so that you start to feel more positive.

Be Mindful

Improve your wellbeing by incorporating mindfulness into your day. Whether you want to do a little every day and use an app to help you relax, or just by paying more attention to everyday things, mindfulness can help to shift your negative thinking into positive thinking.
