Happiness May Affect Mobility

Posted: 07.7.2014

 Seniors who have a zest for life may have greater mobility as they age than their more discontented peers, according to a new study.  The research doesn't prove that happiness extends mobility, but suggests a link between enjoyment of life and more active and healthier old age.  Researchers tracked 3,200 people aged 60 for eight years.  The participants answered questions about their well-being, energy levels, enjoyment of life, ability to do day-to-day activities and how fast they walked.  Only 4% of the people who enjoyed life developed problems with daily activities, compared to 17% of those who enjoyed life the least.
