Happy People are Healthier; Healthier People Live Longer.

When you are happier, you are healthier. In fact, you will likely live longer if you are happier.

You Don’t Have to Achieve Your Dreams to be Happy.

Happiness can come not only from achieving your dreams, but also from journeying along the road to achieving them. Not everyone will reach their goals in life, but they can certainly continue trying to.

In the Meantime, Find Your “Dream” Job.

If your dream is to become an astronaut or professional basketball player, don’t quit your day job. In fact, you should probably find a day job.

Final Thoughts

No, you don’t have to be happy to live longer, but studies show that you likely will if you are.
