The More Time You Spend With Your Mother, The Longer She Will Live, According To Study

Since the time immemorial, moms have been considered to be inexhaustible sources of unconditional love and care. We've seen them fight for us, cry for us, be proud of us and it has sometimes been difficult with us.


Nevertheless, we loathe the idea of our mothers going away from us. Do you often wake up from a nightmare and call for your mother? Or surprise her with unplanned house visits? Then, do that more, because, according to a study, it helps them live longer!


Loneliness plays a determinant role in the downfall which is linked to old age, according to the study that was conducted by the researchers at the University of California, San Francisco.

According to a report posted by Elle, 1600 adults with an average age of 71 participated in the study. Socioeconomic status, as well as health, were the controlled factors. The lonely individuals, however, had higher mortality rates. Almost 23 percent of the participants died within six years, as compared to the 14 percent of those who reported having adequate companionship.

When people grow older, many of their relationships come and go. Sadly, even the lasting ones start to wither away with the passing of age. The people they've shared a considerable amount of their time with might not be around to check on them.

Children often leave their parents alone when their age becomes a burden to them. Little does anyone anticipate that our old folks will go away so far that one might not get a chance to say goodbye.

The understanding of the risks of isolation and an underpopulated, disconnected life can be elusive for many reasons. For example, if no one is addressing the individual’s daily needs — food, medication, medical appointments,” Ms. Moscowitz explains. “The refrigerator is empty, but there’s no one to call. People suffer despair, humiliation.”

Social isolation and loneliness can take a severe toll on older people, psychologically and physically. (Over 75, almost a quarter of men and nearly 46% of women live alone, the Census Bureau reports.)

"The need we've had our entire lives — people who know us, value us, who bring us joy — that never goes away," Barbara Moscowitz, a Senior geriatric social worker at Massachusetts General Hospital told The New York Times.

Loneliness brings its dangers; studies have demonstrated that loneliness has correlations with higher blood pressure, nursing home admissions, risky health behaviors, such as inactivity and smoking, and with dementia.

The elder individuals consider bonds much more seriously than their children or grandchildren do; therefore forgiveness comes quickly to them. Rosemary Blieszner, an instructor of human development at Virginia Tech says that it comes down to the essential relational skills and that the skills our grandparents possess have been honed over a lifetime.

Due to these skills, their friendships are much stable and accepting of the idiosyncrasies and imperfections that their friends have. "You bring a lot more experience to your friendships when you're older. You know what's worth fighting about and not worth fighting about." Rosemary states.

Besides the older relatives and friends that are invited home, its necessary to promote relationships of their level. Often the assisted living environments are misunderstood. However, this widespread belief is misplaced. The older folks tend to thrive in living situations where they can connect and mingle with multiple people of their age. When the quality of their time increases, their longevity becomes more concrete.

Your Grandma and Grandpa can benefit significantly if you spend time, that is, quality time with them on a regular basis. That being said, it helps the young to learn from their experiences too. The interactions they hold with their family gives them the crucial companionship and expression which is essential for life at that stage.

Don’t we go back to secret recipes shared by our grandmothers? Or some killer chess move that your grandfather showed you? Though a sizable number of young ones and adults don’t have grandparents or parents, one can always go to assisted living homes or similar organizations and connect with the elderly there. You may strike a friendship much faster than you think.

The way we prioritize friendships may evolve. Laura Carstensen, a Stanford University psychologist, developed an influential theory called “socioemotional selectivity”: As people sense their remaining time growing brief, they shed superficial relationships to concentrate on those they find most meaningful.

The study establishes an exhaustive base of cases to support their findings - friendship does and statistically helps save lives and extend healthy lives further. This can prove to be an excellent opportunity for social worker and researchers to pay more attention to the central role of friendship in such matters. Activity directors, senior center staff members, and family caregivers can capitalize on the role of friendships; find better ways to help the elders stay in touch with one another or make new ones.

  1. My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via [email protected] did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.

    1. I AM HERE TO TESTIFY ON HOW MY HERPES VIRUS WAS CURED BY DR LEWIS.

      I'm Liubov Nikonets, from Texas USA. I had been in a relationship with a guy and we had unprotected sex for the first time and within a day i got a big bump on the crease of my thigh and vagina. after a few days it began to hurt more and more. I told him to take a picture of it for me, and it looked like open sores, like bugs were biting off my skin or something. So i went to the ER and they said genital herpes. I was soooo depressed. my boyfriend and i cried. he cried for me, but he had no idea he had it too. next day, same thing happens to him. at this point, we think i gave it to him because I was the first one to show the symptoms. The next phase I went through was depression. At this point, all I did was sleep and cry. I felt like my life was over. I knew I could never get married, I felt dirty, and worthless. I was depressed for about two months. I fought thoughts of suicide and it was a hassle to even carry out my daily tasks. So I started to wonder if there would be a remedy to this disease, which led me to going to visiting many hospitals, and nothing good came out from it, until I read a person’s testimony online that said that they were cured with the help of Dr LEWIS Spell, of this disease that the world deems incurable and tears rolled down my face. That persons testimony sparked a hope in me that led me to contact Dr LEWIS. So he assured us that we are going to be alright, after meeting up with the necessary requirements, he sent us a parcel and gave us instruction guide on how to use it, which we did, after 7 days of using the medication, the herpes was totally cured. So I and my boyfriend went and got tested for every STD in the book and every single test came back NEGATIVE, we also went back to the hospital, and it was confirmed NEGATIVE. I am posting my testimony to help someone out there suffering from this disease. Do not hesitate to contact Dr LEWIS via e-mail: [email protected] or WhatsApp him on +393511568477
