Many of us accept we’re not the healthiest person on the planet.
But new research warns this mindset could be dangerous.
In fact, according to Stanford University, people who view themselves as less healthy than others are at risk of suffering a premature death – no matter how active they actually are.
The study, published in Health Psychology, is the latest of many to show how our thoughts, feelings and beliefs have a direct impact on our health.
Experts say this shows we should equally prioritize feeling positive and working out.
