Happy, healthy hearts

Having positive emotions is known as “positive affect”; a state characterised by feelings like joy, enthusiasm, excitement, happiness, and contentment. “Negative affect” is associated with feelings of anxiety, depression, and hostility. This new study looked at over 1700 people taking part in a ten year survey who were assessed by trained nurses for heart disease risk and also for symptoms of positive and negative affect. The positive affect scale was based on a five point scale ranging from none to extreme. They found that for every one point increase on that scale there was a 22 per cent reduction in heart disease risk. This could be due to positive emotions reducing heart rate, improving sleeping patterns or leading to better lifestyle choices. You can increase your positive affect by creating space for whatever you enjoy, finding at least fifteen minutes to do it daily; like reading wellbeing.com.au for example.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
