ABOUT THE SELECTED IMAGE: An evolving body of science and literature has shown the intimate link between health and happiness. Not only is happiness a goal in and of itself, but it appears that happy people more likely to live longer, have less disease and be more resilient. The beach is my “happy place” where I can relax, feel the wind on my face, sand beneath my toes and watch my children run around unencumbered by the stresses of adult life. My wish is for everyone to have a “happy place.” We would all be much healthier, happier and better to one another for it.
