If You Have A Higher Sense Of Purpose You Live Longer?


Those who have a higher sense of purpose in life and believe their lives are useful appear to live longer. Although it's not clear why, believing there is a reason you are here on Earth lowers your risk of death and your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, according to researchers from the Mt. Sinai St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, New York. The study showed a 20 percent lower risk of death for participants with a high sense of purpose in life or ikigai, which is expressed by a sense of vitality, motivation and resilience. This held even after adjusting for other factors. A higher sense of purpose in life was also related to a lower risk of cardiovascular events. Both associations remained significant on analysis of various subgroups, including country, how purpose in life was measured and whether the studies included participants with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
