Sometimes, however, I even find it difficult to practice what I preach, and this is where I thank you very much to my beloved wife. After years of marriage, I can say that it has helped me stick to healthy habits, even during some difficult times when I’ve gotten sick.
Now you can say that men are also feeling the benefits of their wives as new research has shown that a happy wife really means a happier life.
Research at the University of Michigan has the catchy phrase to the test, examination of the idea that a “happy wife means a happy life.” Their findings have come positive.
The secret to live longer with their spouse is
The study, published in the Journal of Marriage and Family examined the responses of elderly couples who have been married for at least 39 years. couples were asked to answer questions on the basis of arguments, appreciation for others, and understanding of feelings.
also they asked
Couples to keep a journal and document their level of happiness within 24 hours of embarking on an activity together, such as gardening, shopping or to complete tasks.
The researchers found that couples generally classified a high level of happiness, and men, even slightly higher rated their satisfaction their wives.
Men can not bear to be sick!
One area in which women rated lower than men’s when the man got sick – always a difficult time! – While men continued to assess a higher level of satisfaction. The researchers suggest that during times of illness, man relies more on women as caregivers and therefore increases their satisfaction. I’m sure my wife would agree!
This is also important because even in old age, men are being cared for by their wives feeding to better health. Professor Carr, principal investigator of the study at the University of Michigan, said Medical News Today that the quality of marriage “provides protection against the effects of ozone for healthy life subsequent stress and helps couples to handle difficult decisions about health and medical decision making. “
But men are the culprits? Probably not, according to research.
The female hormone estrogen stimulates the immune system of women, making them more effective to attack the bad bacteria. Clinical studies in mice found when mice were unable to produce caspase-12, an enzyme that blocks inflammation and combat the disease, were more susceptible to the disease.
Men disadvantage simply because of their lack of immune-boosting hormones.
The notion that the health benefits of the union of men is also supported by a Harvard study that surveyed US adults 127.545. The researchers found that men who were married had improved health compared to their unmarried counterparts. These men also tend to live longer and have a higher survival rate because marriage builds up immunity against the disease.
Marriage is the prevention of disease
In fact, numerous studies marriage and health all seem to reach the same conclusion: Being married helps you live longer. Al RANDCenter for the study of aging, researchers conducted a study of 22 years involving more than 4,000 men. – Changes in the health of men through changes in marital status were examined. If widowed, divorced when they married and how long
The results showed those who stayed married good experience overall health, attributed to reduced stress, more nutritious meals, and treatment of the disease occurs first.
Men who were divorced at the time they were 50 began to experience poorer health. If men remarried, they may experience better health once again. He was also married significant men in their 50s, 60s and 70s had lower mortality rates compared to their unmarried counterparts. Those who have the highest mortality rate were men who were alone and decide to live alone, reaffirming the importance of social relationships.
A report from Harvard University also points out another spousal benefit – better mental health. People in happy marriages have less depression, a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, improved levels of blood sugar, and spend less time in the hospital. Marriage offers companionship and someone to help keep your health on track.
Living together without tying the knot counts, also
Marriage in the United States has changed dramatically in recent years with divorce and blended families on the rise. People are marrying later, if at all, or who choose to live in free union. The average age of marriage has risen to 28 from 23 back in 1960. The marriage rate has fallen to 50 percent since the 1970s
When men and asks the women to rate their level of satisfaction in their marriage, men always rank their highest levels, which further confirms the fact that they are cared for and therefore have better health.
If you are single or living alone, do not despair
Research has also shown that living with someone (no matter the wedding ring) can still give good health. One of the main reasons why men experience poor health is loneliness, because it can take a toll.
But if you are alone or old, you can still take steps to improve their health. Make frequent phone calls to loved ones, invite some friends over for a meal, join a local community group or class, or donate their time to help others. Even these small moments are enough to feel connected and deter the effects of loneliness.
think of it as “useful stimulus’
So the next time your wife, or your partner, reminds you to eat your broccoli, or make follow-up appointment, not think of it as an annoying nag, but more useful stimulus.
I can not thank enough my wife, she continues to make sure that I’m eating well, in my daily walk, and the target of eight hours of sleep each night. we all live busy lives and sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. But definitely has my back.
