Want To Live Longer?

March 14, 2017

You're probably thinking that the answer to living longer is eating healthier and exercise. Sure, those things will definitely help your cause, but there's something else that tends to help people live longer. 

I don't have kids, so I guess if I want to live a longer life I best hop to it. According to a new study from the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, although kids may make life a bit stressful at times, they actually contribute to living a longer life. 

Women with kids lived and extra year-and-a-half compared to those without kids, while dads lived nearly two years longer than empty-nesters.

So if you're on the fence about having kids, go for it! You could live longer.
