    Default The Key To A Long And Healthy Life

    Bryan Hubbard
    June 5 2019

    If you want to live a long life, find a good reason to be alive. People with a purpose live a longer and healthier life than those who believe their life is pointless, a new study has discovered.
    Those with the strongest life purpose were more than twice as likely to live longer than someone whose life was aimless and was about day-to-day survival. They were also less likely to be suffering from a chronic health problem. A positive outlook seems to keep inflammation in check, as well as life-threatening problems such as cancer and heart disease, the researchers say.

    Researchers at University of California - Riverside conducted a study (The Longevity Project) to determine the predictors of health and longevity. Their findings were astounding. Conclusion: It's not the most optimistic, cheerful, happy-go-lucky, stress-free, jovial person who has the best health and lives the longest. **It was the most prudent and persistent individuals who stayed the healthiest and lived the longest. Prudence and persistence led to more important benefits that helped individuals live wiser and more careful lives.

    robinsonsjacob, why can't they? Are you saying that not everyone can find a purpose in life? If so, why not?

    Mr. Wizard it is pretty hard to find the purpose in life, not saying about all the people. But i feel that there are very few people who has a purpose in life.
    One more think i like to add that if somebody wants to live a happy life then he must spread happiness to others people by doing any legal thing.

    Well, if that's the case, every day that I complete everything on my to-do list gives me a sense of accomplishment!
