Does Money Make You Live Longer?

To live long is a desire of many. Longevity is more than just about genes. It is also about attitudes towards life and living. Empower yourself with knowledge in the art of living well in order to live better, younger, and longer.

Many people associate longevity with money because money can make the world go around, money can make you happy, and money can even buy you good health.

But does money really bring longevity? Can money make one live happier and longer?

Before answering these questions, let's look at what contributes to longevity. To live longer, you need holistic wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul. In other words, you need to feel good about your overall being. If that be the case, then comes the next question: what makes you feel good about yourself? Is it abundant wealth, good health, or a satisfying love relationship? Be that as it may, they are only the byproducts of happiness; they do not make you happy. 

Money cannot make you live longer. The only thing that money could probably do is to enable you to have access to more expensive medical treatments when you fall sick. Other than that, money plays a little role in your living longer. 

Many lottery winners attest to their experiences of temporary ecstatic happiness, and nearly all winners confess that winning has ultimately made them miserable and unhappy for various reasons. Maybe once the initial stimulus of sudden wealth and the drastic changes of lifestyle have worn off, they ultimately return to their original baseline level of happiness or unhappiness. Or, maybe, according to some experts, having too much pleasure, what is known as “eustress” can cause, ironically enough, stress, just as lacking in pleasure may be stressful to the many have-nots.

Longevity requires a healthy mind that controls the body that lives in the physical world. Inter-connection between the body and the mind may lead to a healthy soul that oversees the mind and the body.

As If Everything Is A Miracle        

To live well as if everything is a miracle, you need to know your true self—how your mind thinks, how your body acts and reacts, and how your soul supervises both your body and your mind. So, rethink your mind, renew your body, and reconnect your soul for their complete alignment.. Total alignment of the body, the mind, and the soul holds the key to longevity.  With total alignment , you may have the wisdom to know how to make and spend your money, which in itself is neither good nor bad.
