Healthiest, Or Just Happy With Who We Are?

November 19, 2008 at 2:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Lincolnites are the healthiest in the country. It’s true. I read it in a press release.

Well, maybe not. I suspect our “I’m OK” self-perception is more closely aligned with Mr. T’s recent observation about our unpretentiousness than with the actual status of our health. But a healthy attitude is a good start. Plenty of studies have shown that healthy mental states are correlated with healthy physical states. On the other hand, an excessively rosy perception of one’s health may keep a person from taking appropriate preventative or treatment actions. You may think you’re healthy as healthy can be, but if you don’t get that prostate cancer screening…

Knock on wood, The Wilsons are feeling pretty healthy these days. Are you and yours among those fluffing up Lincoln’s survey results?
