"This is not because the happier people are in better health, or younger, or richer, or have more healthy lifestyles at the outset, since even when we take these factors into account, the relationship persists," explains lead study author Dr. Stephen Steptoe. "Our previous work has shown that older people with greater enjoyment of life are more likely to survive over the next 8 years; what this study shows is that they also keep up better physical function."
In essence, it doesn't matter when you start your mood makeover, it just matters that you do it! So snap out of your bad mood, and appreciate what you have -- it'll help you stick around longer. [Medical News Today]
