Health and optimism

A new survey by the Dallas-based United States of Aging found that Americans 60 and older are more motivated than in the past two annual surveys to improve their health by exercising regularly and setting health goals—two simple steps that also relate to reported increases in optimism among seniors. According to the survey, more than one-third of seniors (37%) say they exercise every day, compared to 26% in 2013. And among seniors who exercise daily, 28% say the past year has been better than normal, compared to 15% overall.
