A new study found that finding a purpose in life may decrease the risk of dying early. This is according to JAMA Current Open. Researchers gathered personal data from 7,000 Americans between the ages of 51 and 61 and they found that those without a strong life purpose were "more than twice as likely to die between the study years of 2006 and 2010," compared with those who had a purpose in life. They also found that a low level of purpose in life was more important to life expectancy than money, race, or education. Purpose is even more important for decreasing risk of death than drinking, smoking or exercising regularly." We all know that each life is precious and when we find our purpose the odds are that we'll live longer.
