A new study shows that having a sense of optimism about your future
actually helps you live longer… much longer!
Published March 15, 2015 in Age and Aging, the results are clear: a higher morale leads to a longer life.
- Researchers looked followed over 645 elderly participants (85 years old and older) for over 5 years using interviews, assessments and home visits, and after adjusting for age, health conditions, mobility, functionality and other variables.
- Those with higher morale lived on average 5 years longer than their more pessimistic counterparts.
- If folks who are already 85 years old can add 5 years onto their average life span simply by maintaining a sense of positivity, think of what you can do, no matter your age or physical condition, RIGHT NOW… right where you stand in your life.
This is crucial to recognize, because as we age and some of our physical capabilities and physiological functions decrease…
…the one thing we always have control over is our outlook — and this study demonstrates very clearly the incredible physical impact that outlook has on our body’s health.
