Here is an article about a research study that found a correlation between happiness and expression of positive emotions, and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

One thing of particular interest to me was that those with a general positive outlook who regularly expressed happiness, joy, contentment, and enthusiasm still had the decrease in cardiovascular problems even if they also exhibited some symptoms of depression. (I would fall into this group.)
