Health and Happiness

Tips for staying healthy in the face of viruses and adversity


On behalf of Bliss Medical Center and the Happiness Alliance, we give you this short presentation with advice for staying healthy and happy in the face of the novel coronavirus. Sanitary techniques that prevent spread of infection including hand washing, hand sanitizing, not touching your face, and wearing masks and taking care not to cough or sneeze near other people remain important. However, these measures and more aggressive measures (such as quarantine) have failed to stop the spread of the virus.


As there is no vaccination, no definitive treatment, and preventative measures have generally failed to stop the spread, most people, regardless of their degree of interaction with other people, can be expected to eventually contract the virus. And because the novel corona virus is potentially lethal, even in those who are otherwise healthy, it is easy to feel powerless and afraid.

While the following techniques will not prevent the spread of the virus, they are sound health advice that can help you maximize your personal health and maintain a positive outlook for you, your friends and family. We hope this presentation is helpful to you and encourage you to share it with others.


When faced with viruses or other threats to your health and no option for a vaccine...

try to be as healthy as you can now so that when you are exposed, your body is ready to fight.


The body and mind are connected.

Your health is one way the connection is expressed.
