A lot of people see getting older as a negative thing. But research from Purdue University shows that if you THINK that way, you’ll trigger chemical changes in the brain that speed up the aging process and actually MAKE you feel older. Fortunately, it works the other way, too… People who say they feel younger than their age consistently report fewer health issues than those who say they feel older. They also act more responsibly, and get better sleep – which can add 7 YEARS to your life expectancy, on average.
