The Answer Is Out There!

The Answer Is Out There!

May this post find you in good health with your Medicare coverage working properly.

This week, I read an article in the New York Times and it resonated:

People get a big happiness boost from being with a romantic partner or friends but not from other people, like colleagues, children or acquaintances. Weather plays only a small role in happiness, except that people get a hearty mood boost on extraordinary days, such as those above 75 degrees and sunny. People are consistently happier when they are out in nature, particularly near a body of water, particularly when the scenery is beautiful.”

We shouldn’t expect to be happy all of the time, but we can make an effort to leverage activities that bring joy.

The article also stated, “the activities that make people happiest include sex, exercise and gardening.”

Michelle Kondo, a research social scientist with the USDA Forest Service’s Northern Research Station said this about being in the great outdoors:

“The physiological response to being outside in nature is real, and it’s measurable.”

So if you’re wondering about creating more happiness and more joy in your life – the answer is OUT THERE!

The choice is yours :), but if you do have questions about Medicare, book a time on my calendar.
