Mental Attitude Has a LOT To Do With Successful Aging!

Mental Attitude: Attitude And 100 Years.

Personality also determined how well centenarians reacted to life stress and change, and therefore whether they were as happy in their old age as they were when young. Healthy 100-year-olds had personalities that are open and conscientious.
