Did your mother ever tell you to be nice to people and have good manners? Well, new research may have proved that mother knows better than even she believed! New research conducted by Dettol and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has found that those with good manners, a pleasant attitude and who are generally more ordered in their day to day life are more than twice as likely to lead healthy lives compared to those who are unpleasant and have bad manners.
Is that it?
No. According to a recent report in the Daily Express, a positive and caring attitude and outlook on life goes hand in hand with leading a healthy lifestyle, including having a better attitude to hygiene, as well as eating better and doing more exercise.
Good mannered people are therefore less likely to be affected by colds and diarrhoea, as well as being two and a half times more likely to be in good health. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has also discovered that elderly people attempt to look after their health more than younger people, and it is also proved that elderly people also have better manners.
Do good manners mean you’re healthy, then?
Obviously, this doesn’t mean having good manners automatically makes you a healthier person, but the report has generally found that those who have respect for other people and treat others with respect, are more likely to respect themselves as such.
Unsurprisingly, the report also discovered that some of the least healthy people in the country are in fact students, as well as office workers. Men are also less hygienic than women in general. It was also found that some of the healthier and most hygienic people in the country were home-makers.
