If we maintain our self confidence level as we age, we stand a good chance of fending off health issues associated with getting older. That’s according to a new study from Montreal`s Concordia University that examined how self-esteem changes as we age. The study, published in the journal “Psychoneuroendocrinology“ measured self-esteem, stress and depresion symptoms in 147 participants age 60 and over, every 24 months for 4 years. Economic and reltionship status and mortality risk were also included. The study suggests raising, or even maintaining self-esteem could provide real health benefits for seniors.
