Being happy shortens your life?!?

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

ScienceDaily: “Cheer up. Stop worrying. Don’t work so hard. Good advice for a long life? As it turns out, no. In a groundbreaking study of personality as a predictor of longevity, University of California, Riverside researchers found just the opposite… …One of the findings that really astounds people, including us, is that the Longevity Project participants who were the most cheerful and had the best sense of humor as kids lived shorter lives, on average, than those who were less cheerful and joking. It was the most prudent and persistent individuals who stayed healthiest and lived the longest.”

Uhh, well I don’t really believe this and just so you know; I’m not letting this ‘research’ impact my happiness…I’d rather live a tad shorter and enjoy life to the max, then a little longer yet cutting down on having FUN in life! πŸ˜‰
