You must have heard of the saying “Happiness is the best medicine“.
This saying came about because it was believed that when you are happy you feel a lot better, which includes being in less pain, not feeling as ill and not getting ill as frequently.
Later it was discovered that simply doing things that you enjoy boosts your immune system is boosted by such as laughing, relaxing, football and treating your brain to a bit of gaming therapy.
I find first person shooters and racing games the best, but I guess if you r into Yahtzee and Monopoly that will work too.
This immune system boost occurs because it was discovered that when you participate in or even watch things you enjoy your body releases the chemicals endorphins, dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin.
Theses chemicals are feel-good and pain relieving chemicals.
Which brings me back to the old saying “Happiness is the best medicine”.
My partner recently had a minor health worry so I advised him to go to the doctors just to get a check-up.
He said “Ok I’m going to go to the walk-in centre in the morning.”
Later that evening we was chatting before he went to sleep and he said he was “S******g himself”.
I gave him some advise as the picture below will explain.
The human body has amazing capabilities and it is amazing what it can do if we put our minds to it. Just look at the Shaolin and the Tibetan monks for example they can achieve and do amazing things and its because they believe and get their mind into a great place.
So please trust in you body and its capability as I do mine and try not to worry.
