如果你总把自己的年龄说的更年轻,那么请你继续这样做吧。因为这也许正是能让你长寿的秘诀!

 

一项新的研究表明,如果那些“说说小谎”的人真的相信他们比自己出生证明上的年龄要年轻,他们就是那些低死亡率人群的一部分。与其形成对比的,是那些感到自己衰老甚至认为自己比实际年龄更老的人群。

 

 

这项新的研究发表在《美国医学会杂志》内科在线版(JAMA Internal Medicine online)。

 

这项研究调查了6489个平均年龄在65.8岁的声称自己感觉比实际年龄大概年轻1到10岁的人群。有趣的是大多数受调查人员的确让人看不出他们真实的年龄。大多数人让人感觉比实际年轻3岁。只有一小部分人群,大概4.8%,给人感觉比实际年龄老1岁。

当伦敦大学学院的研究人员在随后的八年中对被调查人群进行持续跟踪的时候,科学家们发现,那些认为自己比实际年龄年轻的人中,只有14%的过世了。相比之下,那些认为自己比实际年龄老或感到自己在老去的人群中,高达24%死去。

 

为什么你的幸福其实是健康

研究人员说他们想更好地理解是什么让这群人如此不同。

研究得出结论:“可能性包括一些我们没有度量的健康行为(比如保持健康体重和听从医疗建议)”,更好的恢复能力,统治感,和愿意生活在那些同样认为自己年轻的人群之中。自我理解出的年龄有可能会变,所以干扰因素还是存在的。感到自己比实际年龄更老的人群会成为针对老化宣传积极健康行为和态度的宣传目标。”

专门研究年老化的埃默里大学的内科医生兼医学助理教授莎朗·伯格奎茨博士对此研究结果并不感到惊讶。

“研究告诉我们性格可以如此与你的命运相连”伯格奎茨博士如是说。

 

你的幸福类型很关键

一项关于性格和老化的新研究发现似乎有两项特性能帮助人们活的更长:责任心 和 乐观。

同时拥有这两项特性的人们更加愿意去做保持健康生活方式和让自己年老时依然健康的事情。

“健康地老去当然能成为一个自我证明的预言”伯格奎茨博士说。

 

以下是CNN报道的英文原文

 

 

People who feel younger at heart live longer

(CNN)Go ahead lie about your age. It may be the very thing that helps you live a longer life.

If those fibbers truly believe that they are younger than what it says on their birth certificate, a new study shows they are among a group of people who have a lower death rate.

That's compared with those who felt their age or who even feel older than their years.

The land of the elders

The new research letter is published in JAMA Internal Medicine online.

The study looked at data from from 6,489 people with an average age of 65.8 years who reported that they felt a little less than 10 years younger. What's interesting is most people in the study didn't feel like their actual age. Most said they felt about three years younger. Only a tiny percent, some 4.8%, felt at least a year older than their actual age.

When University College London researchers followed up on these people over the next eight years, the scientists found only a little over 14% of those who felt younger than their years had died. That was compared with the more than 24% of the people who reported feeling older or feeling their age who had died. Some 18% of the people who felt like their chronological age died in that same time period.

Why happiness is healthy

The researchers say they want to better understand what made the difference with this group.

"Possibilities include a broader set of health behaviors than we measured (such as maintaining a healthy weight and adherence to medical advice), and greater resilience, sense of mastery and will to live among those who feel younger than their age," the study concludes. "Self-perceived age has the potential to change, so interventions may be possible. Individuals who feel older than their actual age could be targeted with health messages promoting positive health behaviors and attitudes toward aging."

Dr. Sharon Bergquist, a physician and assistant professor of medicine at Emory University School of Medicine who specializes in healthy aging, isn't surprised by the results.

"Research is showing us that personality can so be tied to your destiny," Bergquist said.

Your happiness type matters

New research into the link between personality and aging finds that there are two main traits that seem to help people live a longer life: conscientiousness and optimism.

People who have both traits may have more of a will to do the right thing to live a healthy lifestyle that can keep them healthy long into old age.

"Aging well can certainly become a self-fulfilling prophecy," she said.

 

点睛点评
乐观在平时是心情,在大起大落,在脆弱的时候是心态。乐观与健康的生活行为影响着我们的命运。(怎么又变哲学家了呢~无奈~)
