Having purpose in life 'could reduce stroke risk'
People who feel that they have a purpose in life are 20 per cent less likely to suffer from a stroke, according to a new study.
A study of over-50s found that those who had defined goals for the future were at a much lower risk of suffering a clot on the brain than people with few objectives.
It remains unclear whether setting aims later in life makes people more likely to keep up a healthy lifestyle, or whether thinking positively about one's life somehow protects against a stroke, researchers said.
