What is happiness and why does it matter?
Happiness is difficult to define but most people know it when they see or feel it. The truth is that there is not one perfect definition of happiness; it is comprised of several components and influenced by a variety of factors, such as genetics, personality, and life circumstances. Regardless of the influences, individuals can take charge and learn strategies to cultivate happiness in their lives.
A positive perspective can improve a person's immune system and cognitive functioning. Happy people tend to be energetic, cooperative, and resilient. For physicians, this can lead to better connection with patients and improved diagnostic decisions.
