Researchers say the key to longevity lies in a positive outlook on life. According to a survey appearing on Good News Network, 60 percent of Americans who have reached their 100th birthday say they don’t feel old; rather, they actually feel two decades younger than their actual age. Those same people claim they are extremely positive about the way they view life. Turns out, there may be a connection between healthy aging and a positive mindset. Taking care of our emotional selves may just be the ticket to ensuring you hit 100.
A Little Help from Family & Friends
A large part of that positivity in survey respondents had to do with staying in touch with family members and friends. Whether through a quick visit at home, a walk around the block, or an outing together, making valuable emotional connections is vital to enjoying a long, healthy and prosperous life. That’s why Advanced Home Care Services is such an important part of your aging senior’s life.
