Longevity and Happiness

Longevity and Happiness

If you wish to live to 100 and beyond, you must have a healthy body and a happy mindset with the right thinking. More specifically, you need the physical strength to live and survive in the material world, as well as the mental attitude to confront all the changes and challenges confronted as you approach the end of your life journey. In other words, you must be happy.

Human happiness is about the realities in human life experienced by the human mind. That is to say, the humanl as mind plays a pivotal part in human happiness because it is the thinking mind that perceives and processes all those life experiences, turning them into either happiness or unhappiness.

Life is all about experiences, which are thoughts of those experiences composed by the thinking mind. According to James Allen, the author of As A Man Thinketh, men are “makers of themselves” and the human mind is thus the “master-weaver, by both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance.” Accordingly, you may have become who and what you are by way of your thinking mind over the years; in other words, you are the sum of your own thoughts. Therefore, it is important that you understand how your thinking mind works in your life, making you happy or unhappy.
