Women’s Happiness Doesn’t Affect Mortality

Many studies have been conducted that claim to link happiness and living a longer life together. “A study published on Wednesday in The Lancet, following one million middle-aged women in Britain for 10 years, finds that the widely held view that happiness enhances health and longevity is unfounded. Happiness and related measures of well-being do not appear to have any direct effect on mortality, the researchers concluded,” (NY TIMES).
“The results come from the so-called Million Women Study, which recruited women ages 50 to 69 from 1996 to 2001, and tracked them with questionnaires and official records of deaths and hospital admissions. The questionnaires asked how often the women felt happy, in control, relaxed and stressed, and also instructed them to rate their health and list ailments like high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis and depression or anxiety,” (NY TIMES).
The good news is that you can be as grumpy as you want and you can still live a full long life! Sadly though, making those grumpy faces can affect your face and create wrinkles where you may not want them. This is when you will want to call us for a few Botox shots or possibly other skincare treatments. Just because you want to walk around grumpy all day doesn’t mean you have to appear that way.
