Work Hard and Be Happy—Two Ways to Support Longevity

Do you laugh easily and often and feel positively about life? Those are two of the personality traits associated with longevity!

In their 2012 book, “The Longevity Project: Surprising Discoveries for Health and Long Life from the Landmark Eight-Decade Study,” co-authors Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin identified character strengths that contribute to longevity.

• Working hard is one of them.

• Not giving up is one of them.

• Being happy as well as optimistic are two others, although that doesn’t mean being blindly happy all the time.

• A conscientious attitude goes a long way. You’re planning your life, striving for balance. And very interestingly, being conscientious even as a child is one of the best predictors of how long you’ll live.

• Being part of a family and having friends—and staying connected with them—can boost your longevity by 50 percent. That’s one of the upsides of keeping in touch with friends through Facebook.

• And along those same lines, being friendly. Reaching out to people and taking an interest. Turns out that extroverts also extend their lives.
