Help Others, Live Longer

Listen to Ageless Lifestyles Radio host Michael Brickey interview Stephen Post, president of The Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, on his program yesterday. The two of them discussed how altruism can affect happiness and longevity, as well as how it relates to positive psychology, religion, and spirituality. According to Post, a bioethics professor at Case Western Reserve University and co-author with Jill Neimark of Why Good Things Happen to Good People, while "becoming a more loving, altruistic person won't make you live forever, people who are loving and altruistic tend to live longer. It isn't just one research study but several longitudinal studies, numerous experiments, brain chemistry studies, and studies of the anger and hostility that all converge on this conclusion." —Heather Wax
