Research states that having a positive attitude about aging can actually be good for your health!
In particular…a 2002 study by Yale University researchers reported that seniors with a positive attitude about aging wound up living 7.5 years longer than those who had a negative view on aging.
Researchers believed that older folks who saw themselves as “a burden to others” wound up experiencing depression and social isolation. These negative beliefs on aging then became “silent killers” for those seniors.
Happily, there’s now something called “The Positive Aging Movement”!

(Psssst…If you’re new to my work, hi there! I’m a late in life mom and research geek! I promised my son Ari I’d do everything I could to live to 100. He asked me to live to 200 – but I bargained him down. I then spent 2 years in intensive research – and wrote a bestselling longevity book, called Life is Long. I’m determined to help people to live longer, younger and healthier!)
