Boost Employee Well-Being with 17 Fascinating Happiness Facts

Research in the science of happiness is booming , and new findings Newman (2015), Florentine (2016) are coming out. Here are a few of the most interesting facts and findings so far:

😁 Happiness is linked to lower heart rate and blood pressure, as well as healthier heart rate variability.

😁 Happiness can also act as a barrier between you and germs – happier people are less likely to get sick.

😁 People who are happier enjoy greater protection against stress and release less of the stress hormone cortisol.

😁 Happy people tend to experience fewer aches and pains, including dizziness, muscle strain, and heartburn.

😁 Happiness acts as a protective factor against disease and disability (in general, of course).

😁 Those who are happiest tend to live significantly longer than those who are not.

😁 Happiness boosts our immune system, which can help us fight and fend off the common cold.

😁 Happy people tend to make others happier as well, and vice versa – those who do good, feel good!

😁 A portion of our happiness is determined by our genetics (but there’s still plenty of room for attitude adjustments and happiness-boosting exercises!).

😁 Smelling floral scents like roses can make us happier.

😁 Those who are paid by the hour may be happier than those on salary (however, these findings are limited, so take them with a grain of salt!).

😁 Relationships are much more conducive to a happy life than money.

😁 Happier people tend to wear bright colors; it’s not certain which way the relationship works, but it can’t hurt to throw on some brighter hues once in a while—just in case!

😁 Happiness can help people cope with arthritis and chronic pain better.

😁 Being outdoors – especially near the water – can make us happier.

😁 The holidays can be a stressful time, even for the happiest among us – an estimated 44% of women and 31% of men get the “holiday blues.”

😁 Happiness is contagious! When we spend time around happy people, we’re likely to get a boost of happiness as well.
