many of us have a pessimistic view of aging -- but new research reveals getting older can mean feeling better!
a new study asked over a thousand seniors if they thought they were aging successfully.
the results showed most seniors' well-being improved with age -- even in the middle of physical or cognitive decline.
in fact, researchers say resilience and depression had the most impact on how participants rated themselves.
those who had more physical disabilities but felt mentally healthy -- had similar scores as those who were in good physical health but had symptoms of depression.
