Education and problem-solving

Education and problem-solving vs. Reduced biological stress

"Education may also promote problem-solving skills leading to reduced biological stress responsivity, with favorable consequences for biological aging. Lower educational attainment is associated with shorter leukocyte telomere length in healthy older men and women, and may reflect more rapid cellular aging in lower socioeconomic status individuals." Andrew Steptoe (University College London), “Educational attainment but not measures of current socioeconomic circumstances are associated with leukocyte telomere length in healthy older men and women.” (Original Research Article), by Andrew Steptoe, Mark Hamer, Lee Butcher, Jue Lin, Lena Brydon, Mika Kivimki, Michael Marmot, Elizabeth Blackburn, Jorge D. Erusalimsky, In Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, Elsevier Inc., 25, 1292-1298, April 2011. doi:10.1016/j.bbi.2011.04.010.

"Each decision you make, each path you take, each risk you take helps to define who you are and who you will become. Investing the time to think through, investigate, weigh options, and then choosing your decisions carefully creates a better life."
