Tips for a longer, happier life

August 21, 2020

1. Be Nicer.

A 2012 study published in the journal Aging found a correlation between optimism and longer lifespans. That's right: A positive attitude toward life can be the difference between checking out early and being the last one at the party.

 

2. Laugh More.

Not only is laughing fun, but it's also good for you! One 2016 study published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine found that women with a strong sense of humor had a 73 percent lower risk of death from heart disease, an 81 percent lower risk of death from infection, and a 48 percent lower risk of death from all causes.

 

3. Embrace Aging.

Turns out, embracing your age could help you live longer. One 2002 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that adults who developed positive attitudes about getting older lived more than seven years longer than those who had negative feelings about it.
