A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.
A joyful, positive outlook is beneficial to our health! A hopeless, negative feeling, however, can drain us of even the will to get well.
Seeking the joy that God can give, even in our trials, and seeking to be around those who cheer us up are healthy choices. Laughter and uplifting conversation can make us happier—and healthier!
