A recent study published by the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that people who feel happiest live longer as well as happier! In fact they enjoy a 35% reduced risk of death than those who report feeling unhappy. Rather than relying on recollection, as past studies have, the British researchers rated the nearly 4000 participants aged 52-79 several times a day. The follow up came five years later with other factors like age, gender, health, wealth, education and marital status factored in. While it isn’t clear if simply being happy extends life, there certainly is some connection between the two. So how happy are you? The happiest people I know are Christians! They have a purpose in life: to serve God; and a goal for living: eternal life with God in heaven. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
