Don’t be sad. Be Happy

One time, my brother and I were having a conversation. He told me that he accompanied his friend in the hospital. They were in a large room where it was filled with cancer patients who were undergoing chemotherapy.

His friend, who’s in a stage 3 cancer, met a certain person who was there to visit the doctor for some follow up check-up. This person said that she’s a cancer survivor and the major reason why she’s able to overcome her sickness is because of her being happy. According to her, when you’re sad, your immune system will be down which could lead to invasion of cancer cells in our bodies. But when you’re happy, your immune system will be strong, thus, creating a defense against these cancer cells.

I definitely agree. Even as simple as fever, the moment it hits me, I would cheer myself up by getting occupied with what I like to do such as listening to music, meditation, watching a movie or better yet, go to the mall and eat in a restaurant with my family. I don’t take medicine. Not a single tablet at all. I just double my water intake and get more hours of sleep. Then after some few hours, I observe, my fever is then gone.
