We all know that laughter is the best medicine. But did you know that optimistic people are prone better overall health than their grumpy counterparts? Yep. It’s true! While studying medical billing and coding online already makes for a happier disposition (eliminating commutes and enabling study from the comfort of your favorite location), there are still plenty of external stressors that can lead us to be grumpy, angry, anxious and a whole host of other negative feelings. In the end though, if you can maintain a positive outlook and attitude, you’ll be doing yourself a favor health-wise. When this blogger begins to feel snippy, he seeks out some levity on the internet. In fact, this is exactly how I came upon this information today. In an article entitled, “the Happiest Facts in the World“, after a bunch of neat facts that made me smile, I found a slideshow explaining the physiological impacts of happiness versus anger or sadness. I highly recommend all medical billing specialists (or students of medical billing school online) read it. It’ll do your body good!
