Things We Need for a Long and Happy Life

Researchers talked to 2,000 people who are either retired, or approaching retirement age.  And they asked them to name the top things you need to have a long and happy life.  Here are the top ten . . .

1.  Being with someone who loves you.

2.  Staying close with your family.

3.  Laughing every day.

4.  Regular exercise.

5.  Getting out into nature.

6.  Getting eight hours a sleep a night.

7.  Having a pet.

8.  Having enough money to do what you want.

9.  Having a job you love.  Or at least a job you don’t hate most of the time.

10.  Quality time with your kids and grandkids.

A few more that just missed the top ten were having a hobby . . . having friends . . . small acts of kindness . . . and listening to music every day.
