Education is the Key to Longevity

Surprising results are showing that among people who live the longest are those who have a high level of education. Committing to an education teaches people how to plan for the future and accept delayed gratification. Educated people also tend to be more knowledgeable of health risks like obesity, drinking and smoking, and as a result have more reasons to avoid those life-cutting habits. Continuing to learn can also extend your life because it keeps your mind healthy and sharp.[1]

Try picking up a book on an unfamiliar topic or enroll in a night class to pick up some new skills. The extra effort in your education can mean a longer, happier and healthier life.
