As one goes through the circle of life, one question does remain: how can we achieve true happiness? This is a topic that has been researched by numerous scientists and doctors. Yet, it seems like no one has really found an accurate answer that would define what the triggers of happiness are. In this article, I will try to outline how golf allowed me to be happy during the first 50 years of my life – I hope that you can use some of that information to make yourself happier.

First, golf can help you achieve happiness by keeping in touch with lifelong friends. Indeed, as golf is a true event, it will allow you to reconnect with people you may not have met otherwise. Golf is an excuse to see them: and a good one, should I say, as it also involves competing against or with them to win the golf game. In that regard, golf appears like a true connector which will make sure to keep you happy by remaining in touch with your best friends.

Second, golf is a true work out sport. Even though this may not seem like it, when you play golf you actually do burn a lot of calories. Indeed, not only hitting a great swing involves a lot of energy to push the ball off the ground, walking around the golf course and carrying the equipment will also make sure to have sweat come out of your skin – creating that necessary calorie burn that you will want to have as part of your daily exercise. Here’s a few golf workouts that can be used at any age to really keep yourself in shape and remain happy.

Third, golf will truly allow you to at least go outside once a day. This is particularly important for retirees who may not get the chance to go outside much. Golf will act as a workout and outgoing activity, which is crucial to keep dopamine levels in your body. This will ensure that you stay very healthy and adopt a lifestyle that will ensure you remain in shape for years to come.

Fourth, golf will help you to achieve true happiness by feeling like you are actually having fun. This is especially important if you like to play with new golf toys, like golf clubs, balls or even carts and bags. The pleasure of trying out new equipment can really up your mood and make you feel like you are in your twenties again. I’ve just released a new guide on the best hybrid golf clubs which go in depth into which hybrids you may want to take with you next time you hit the golf course.

To conclude with, I hope that these fourth points have helped you to really embrace life and generate happiness through the game of golf. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions or comments – I’ll happily answer them. I am also more than happy to answer any questions you may have on how I managed to be happier while playing golf.
