You know that saying ‘Happy Wife, Happy Life?’ Well, there is a study that deems this to be true in a whole different way than the comical husband quote. Happy wife or female in general helps to decrease possibility of worsening bone density! Yes, the study related bone density and women’s satisfaction with their life!

Over 10 years of research and 1,147 women went into helping this study. The original test of bone density and a questionnaire about the satisfaction of life was taken in 1999. In 2009 another test was completed. The more satisfied women in the group had the least change/decrease in bone density over the 10 year span. Eighty-five percent of the women with a more negative life satisfaction rating or with the change to negative from positive had a weakened bone density over the span of 10 years.

Here are some positive vibes and quotes to leave you with a great start to your day and better bone health!
