Scientists say being a nosy parker could help you live longer

Scientists believe that being a nosy parker could help you live longer.

A Spanish study of people aged 100 or over discovered curiosity is an important trait for people living longer. They said it was more important than humour, optimism, or faith, reports the Daily Star

It would be good news for busybodies like Cissie and Ada – played by Les Dawson and Roy Barraclough – and Corronation Street’s Norris Cole. 

The study by psychologists at Univ-ersidad Complutense de Madrid revealed: “Analysis of the life of healthy centenarians provides us with lessons that, in all probability, could help in achieving a healthy old age.”

“Be curious, travel and read. Curiosity is the zeal for knowing, travelling, being up-to-date. Stay intellectually active, finding new areas of knowledge and learning.”

Scientists have also said why time appears to slow down in near-death experiences. The brain begins to take into account dangers, and triggers a fight or flight response.

Professor Ruth Ogden from Liverpool John Moores University released a report suggesting potential damage and slowing down time could be something the brain actively does. Professor Ogden’s report said “our brain processes time is closely related to the way in which it processes emotion. During heightened emotion, the activation caused by the brain attempts to maintain stability, which alters its ability to process time.”
