Cheerfulness of spirit has a great influence on your body. Especially a heart full of spiritual joy, peace, and contentment flowing from the blood of Christ, joy in the Holy Ghost and the righteousness of Jesus Christ, affects even the outward (physical) part of us.

But a broken spirit dries the bones: a spirit broken with sorrow and the joy or grief of the have a very great influence upon the body, either for its good or hurt.
