Love and Longevity

When motivational business speaker, Harvey MacKay once said “find something you love to do and you’ll never have work a day in your life, “ he wasn’t just talking about your occupation.  He was also talking about your way of life.

Doing the things you love to do is essential to long life

Admit it – we all get tied down by the typical responsibilities and tasks we face each day, in the office and at home.  But who’s to say we shouldn’t take more time out of our daily routine to indulge in those pleasures and hobbies that we truly love.  Well organizations, such as the National Institute on Aging, are conducting research to prove just that – that we should enjoy those pleasures more often.  The benefits of this commitment don’t just promise happiness and joy, surprisingly enough they also ensure you a much longer life as well.

According to the study, “people who are involved in hobbies and other social and leisure pursuits may be at lower risk for (and less likely to develop) some health problems, including dementia.  They might even live longer.  In one study, older adults who reported participating in social activities or meaningful, productive activities  lived longer than people who did not.”
