Happy Heart

In our busy schedule is important to find a time to relax and unwind doing something that doesn’t require much effort. I highly suggest put your iPhones, iPad or Kindle away, and visit your local book store slash coffee shop, grab a book and dip yourself into a world of fantasy, travel or biographies that are so wonderfully written in original hardbacks of good’all books.
I enclosed a picture of a bookstore that I discovered this morning in Boscombe, UK “The Crooked Book” highly recommended if you happens to visit south west coast of England.

* Save bookstores for the sake of our healthy hearts!!

Bellow is a very good article from – Dr. Cindy Haines of HealthDay TV

“Having a positive outlook doesn’t just boost your spirits; it may also keep your heart happy.

* Experts keep finding new links between our emotional and physical health. In a new report in the Psychological Bulletin, a pair of Harvard researchers takes a closer look at how optimism may keep our hearts healthy.

* After reviewing earlier studies, they conclude that people with so-called “positive psychological well-being” have a lower risk of heart disease. The element that seems to be especially helpful is optimism. Last year, these same researchers found that out of a group of nearly 8,000 men and women, those with the highest levels of optimism were 27-percent less likely to develop coronary heart disease. People with an upbeat outlook tend to have a healthier lifestyle, which may help explain this connection, according to the researchers.

*Even if you’re not naturally optimistic, small changes in your life can help brighten your outlook:

* Regular exercise can help relieve depression.
* Yoga can be especially useful for helping your mind and body work together.
* And spending a few moments every day to feel grateful for the good things in your life can help you learn to focus on the positive.”
