Study shows: Yoga is a happiness helper

Researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine investigated whether yoga or walking made people happier…and yoga won!

They found people who did an hour of yoga three times a week reported being happier and less anxious than those who did light walking for the same amount of time. And the science backed them up: The yoga types had higher levels of mood-boosting chemicals in their brains as well.
