Previous research indicates that mental well-being is closely associated with good physical health. The study found that a happy spouse leads to improved health.

Key takeaways:

  •          The new study suggests that the happiness of one’s husband or wife is linked to physical health.
  •      People who had an unhappy partner were found to have more physical impairments, got less exercise and rated their overall health poorly.
  • A happy spouse was found to provide social support and encouragement to eat a healthful diet and get exercise.

“This speaks to the power of our close relationships,” Dr. Chopik continued. “We’ve known for a long time that when we surround ourselves with happy people, we’re happier. But now we know that it not only makes us happier, but healthier as well.”
