To live a happy life is one of the main goals we set for ourselves. Happiness not only has a huge impact on our physical health but it also enriches us emotionally and increases our ability to become productive.  A happy life can only be lead if one is satisfied and placid from within.
Everyone has certain goals and desires which they want to accomplish in their lives but at times in spite of trying, they remain unable to fulfill their dreams. Their failure in doing so leaves them full of negative thoughts and makes a person reluctant to try again, eventually leading them to give up
Our approach towards life affects it to an extent we might can’t imagine. Researchers have found that negative emotions narrow your mind and focus your thoughts. Basically, our brain shuts off the outside world and prevents us from seeing the other options and choices that surround us. It’s our survival instinct. Negative thoughts make us depressed and restrict us to use our potential.
On the other hand positive thoughts broaden sense of possibility and opens up ones  mind to more options.
Let’s have a look at how a positive approach towards life helps us to lead a happy life.
When faced with stressful situations, positive thinkers cope more effectively than pessimists. Positive thinkers are more likely to focus on the solutions to get out of a difficult situation instead of dwelling into deep negative thoughts.
Not only can positive thinking impact your ability to cope with stress but it also has an impact on your overall well-being. The Mayo Clinic reports a number of health benefits associated with optimism, including a reduced risk of death from cardiovascular problems, less depression, and an increased lifespan. By coping better with stress and avoiding unhealthy behaviors, they are able to improve their health and well-being.
Researchers have also found that in the wake of a crisis, positive thoughts and emotions encourage thriving and provide a sort of buffer against depression among resilient people.
Experts believe that positivism and resilience can be learned; by nurturing positive emotions, even in the face of terrible events, people can enjoy both short-term and long-term rewards, including managing stress levels, lessening depression, and building coping skills that will serve them well in the future.
