Happy People Make Their Partners Happier

Several research studies have shown that happy people in a stable relationship can be good for the health of both partners. But did you know there is also a link between one partners happiness and the health of the other?

Building on the idea that a happy person is often a healthy person, researchers from Michigan State University and the University of Chicago decided to explore whether a happy couple could positively affect relationships. After studying nearly 2,000 couples, they found that people with a happy partner were more likely to report better health over time – above and beyond their own happiness.

It could be that a happy spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend offers their partner more TLC than an unhappy one who is often focused more on his or her own needs. A happy partner, especially one who follows a healthy lifestyle which includes regular exercise and smart food choices, is more likely to motivate their spouse to follow their example and become healthier in the process. Also, a happy spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend is likely to place fewer demands on their partner, reducing the likelihood of unhealthy behaviors like drinking or smoking.

So, how can you create a happier environment within your relationship? It’s easier than you might think. Showing affection fosters feelings of well-being. These can be physical demonstrations, like kisses and hugs and holding hands as you sit or walk, as well as verbal ones, such as a simple but heartfelt compliment. After all, who doesn’t respond positively to hearing those three little words, “I love you?”
