Does Happiness Really Help You Live Longer?
Decades of studies have suggested the answer is yes, which makes the cultivation of subjective well-being (a more technical term that researchers often use to talk about human happiness) seem like a matter of life and death. In other words, do jocund and lighthearted people tend to live longer? But a new analysis of data from the UK Million Women Study concludes that happiness has no bearing on mortality. The study examined whether electronically-collected survey data about health and happiness, from just under 720,000 women in their 50s and 60s, predicted them dying from any cause within the next 8 to 13 years.
