A New Twist on New Year’s Resolutions – Charlotte Today

New Year’s Resolution’s are not just for the young. 2020 gave people a lot of time to think about life and what is important. So as we look at 2021 what should we know and what has changed? Let’s start by reminding our viewers why it is important to have these as you age. Resolutions give purpose because essentially they provide goals to achieve. That helps you live longer. Studies have shown that purpose is more indicative of longevity than gender, race, or education. It’s more important than decreasing risk of death than drinking, smoking, or exercising. In fact, Rush University studies show that having purpose will make you less likely to develop Alzheimer’s.
