The key tip for a longer life is to have as much optimism and a positive outlook on life and everything that happens to you. This is the latest discovery by scientists at Boston University Medical School. The study included 69,744 women and 1,429 men and explored their levels of optimism over 10 years in women and 30 years in men.
The results showed that people with higher levels of optimism had an 11 to 15 percent longer life expectancy and a 50 to 70 percent greater chance of reaching 85. Scientists believe that optimistic people can more effectively balance emotions, and more easily move away from the stress imposed on them in everyday life. There seems to be a link between a positive outlook on life, and its length in general.
