A recent study from the Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience Journal has found an interesting link between how old we feel we are and the effects of aging.
The researchers asked a group of people to rate if they felt older or younger than their real age and what they discovered will please those who feel young at heart! The results showed that for those people who felt younger, the effects of aging on the body were significantly less than those who felt old.
"If somebody feels older than their age, it could be sign for them to evaluate their lifestyle, habits and activities that could contribute to brain aging and take measures to better care for their brain health," one of the researchers said.
They also added that those people who felt older than they are, were less likely to exercise, which also had a negative impact on their life span.
Judging by this, feeling young can be good for you in more ways than one!
