Can Positive Thinking Lead to Live Longer?

Positive thinking (credit to livebeyondone).

Based on researches done by several Universities recently that there is relationship between positive thinking and live longer.

I think this finding have changed our long belief that the physical outfit only could increase our chances to live healthy and life expectancy.

Feeling of positive thinking or optimism make our health condition better, thus naturally, our immune system or body in better condition to fight many diseases.

In other word that positive thinking people have lower risk to get diseases such as:
- respiratory relate diseases
- cancer
- stroke
- heart diseases

It is interesting that we may have positive thinking by doing good or healthy or certain habits. What kind of habits?


Positive thinking, just for illustration (credit to RTE)

The positive or healthy habits include:
- exercise regularly
- consume healthy foods (not smoking, no alcohol)
- sleep enough, at least six hours daily
- strong work ethics
- regulate emotional

Moreover, one of researches has observed more than 70 thousands men and women for periods of 10 to 30 years. It is concluded that:
- positive thinking people may live about 13% longer than pessimism people.
- optimism persons have greater chance to reach 85 years old age.

Do you believe that a positive thinking or optimism can make us live longer?

  1. Non credo che un pensiero positivo o un ottimismo possano farci vivere più a lungo.

  4. o Definitely! I need to practice it on a daily basis. Very often we concentrate on what we did wrong, and forget what we have accomplished. Positive thinking for sure helps us live longer and healthier!

  7. Such research is inadequate to what the Nakuists write because because they do not know the cuckoo mind well, how can they know what makes people can live long through positive thinking.
    We know that how we think positively, it is easier for us and we are happy and calm and achieve better success in our professional and private life.
    It depends on us how we think positively.

      # Why do you think researchers didn't have method to know?
      -after 30 year observations?

  8. Non so se pensare positivo possa allungare la vita, certamente fa vivere meglio, anche perché sovente i pensieri negativi si riferiscono al timore, alla paura del domani e poiché il domani non ci appartiene, dovremmo concentrarci solo e soltanto sul momento presente e cercare di viverlo al meglio. Dobbiamo allenare la mente a pensieri positivi e saperla chiudere a pensieri negativi. Bel post. Buona giornata:)

  12. Nie chciałabym zabrzmieć przekornie, ale trochę się wystraszyłam. Jestem
    bardzo pozytywnym potworem, czy marzę o takiej długowieczności????
    Dobrze jeszcze, gdy wzrok nie szwankuje i można poczytać.
    Z reguły wygląda to tak: -
    - zęby w szklance
    - oczy za mgłą
    - a przyjaciele głęboko w piachu
    Samotność, brak pasji, i czekanie na sen
    Opiekuje się 90 letnia kobietą, wiem co piszę.
    Cieszmy się życiem tu i teraz, ale czy ta długowieczność to takie błogosławieństwo???

  13. yes it can..it leads to self profetic behaviour:)))

  14. I believe that it can. When you are pesimist you stres your body with negative thoughts that can lead to disease.

  16. We can never underestimate the power of positive thinking. Our mindset is so important especially in the face if adversity.

  17. Pozytywne myślenie jest bardzo ważne, zgadzam się z tym co napisałaś.
    Życie jest zbyt krótkie by być pesymistą :)

  18. Power of positive thinking? But science stated different. I was reading Matt Ridley in his book: G E N O M we are does have chromsome no. 4th it called as Destiny, how much you try it runs and playing with it rule. You will being die when it comes.

    Human does exist with all their potential as if it no limit, but with all their diseas as well - at least until now that are what look like.

  22. I actually agree with this...people who tend to think positive have less stress for sure. I wish I can be positive all the time, but alas....

    ReplyDelete
  23. Makes sense because it would mean less stress. Stress can wreck havoc in many ways. Negativity can bring us down in so many ways physically and emotionally.

  24. I like to think so but I know some miserable people who keep going on and on!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I believe it can. AND I think when one IS positive it adds tremendously to their personal quality of life, which can only be a good thing.

  26. There is nothing healthier than positive thinking and behavior. They are healers both personally and in the collective affective. Thinking well and behaving well have to do with conviction in a better world.

    What a beautiful post, Evi. Lovely. And very stimulating.

    Hugs and more hugs

  27. I think it is a combination of thinking and action. All the positive thinking in the world will not help if you are eating unhealthy and smoking up a storm.

  54. Gracias por tu visita, buena reflexión.Los pensamientos que tenemos y las palabras que decimos están continuamente configurando nuestro mundo y nuestras experiencias. Muchos tenemos el viejo hábito de pensar negativamente, y no nos damos cuenta del daño que nos hacemos a nosotros mismos. Sin embargo, nunca estamos estancados, porque siempre podemos cambiar nuestra manera de pensar. Cuando aprendemos a elegir constantemente pensamientos positivos, los viejos y negativos se disuelven y desaparecen. Creo que tener pensamientos positivo hace que nos sintamos mejor con nosotros mismo.
    Saludos!
