Everything else being equal, if you are happy and satisfied with your life now, you are more likely to be healthy in the future, said U.S. researchers.
Mohammad Siahpush lead author of the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha said his study shows that people are happy and satisfied with their life may be in better health.
They used the question "During the past four weeks, have you been a happy person?" To assess happiness. They determined satisfaction with life by asking: "All things considered, how satisfied are you your life? "
Happiness and life satisfaction at the baseline survey were both associated with excellent, good or very good health, lack of long-term, limiting health problems and higher levels of physical health three years.
"There are indications that you become more happy and satisfied with your life, you tend to become healthier as well," Siahpush said in a statement.
The study appears in the September / October issue of American Journal of Health Promotion.
