Five days into the new year, and hopefully your new year’s resolution is still intact. Most of us make resolutions related to our health, which won’t just make you feel better, but taking better care of yourself means you’ll likely look better as well. And there’s an easy way to do that without the gym – just be more thoughtful to others.
It’s not philosophy – it’s science – being compassionate affects the aging process.
There’s something in our DNA called telomeres which decrease as we get older and causes us to age – but scientists say those who are compassionate, loving, and empathetic have telomeres that stay stronger longer.
So even if you’re coworkers annoy you, be more patient and you’ll end up looking younger!
