Behave and feel like young attitude reduces old age ailments

A recent study conducted by researchers at Harvard revealed that people who dress up like young people are much healthier than those that act their age.

The young looking attitude can also reduce the pace of heart and cancer diseases that comes with the growing age. During the study, the researchers conducted an experiment in which the old people were taken back to 1959 for one week.

The old people were offered to live in houses built in style of Fifties, shown TV shows and were played music according to that era and were also instructed to act and talk in the same fashion.

At the end of the week, two of the old men looked younger by three years as their hearing power and eyesight had shown improvement, muscles got stronger and even their mental power improved.

The lead author, Ellen Langer, psychologist at the Harvard University, said in a press release, "Don`t buy the mind-set in the first place, then you won`t be vulnerable to it. I think we have far more control over our health and wellbeing than most of us realize."

In the second experiment, the researchers the older females were given a major makeover by styling their hair and also adding color to it and the researchers found that this change made the old women look and feel younger.
