We all know, especially those of us getting older, that you’re really only as old as you feel. But the other side of that coin is, the older you feel the sicker you are…or will be. This study demonstrates that those who ‘feel old’ tend to have more hospital visits than those who don’t feel so old. Is it the chicken-egg thing? Maybe, but we don’t have the evidence yet to declare it so.
The main thing is, if you’re feeling old, start a gentle exercise program, eat a little healthier diet, and see your doc to find out if there are any notable issues underlying your sense of antiquity.
