LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To celebrate the New Year, the Los Angeles Jewish Home has produced an inspiring new video featuring seniors sharing their resolutions. The resolutions vary widely, with some focused on exercising more, stopping smoking, making new friends, or finding ways to control their anger. Nearly all, however, share at least one resolution in common: to live in the moment.
Most of the residents of the Jewish Home have discovered the key to longevity is living in the moment—and enjoying it. This optimistic outlook is embraced by the centenarian and near-centenarian residents of the Home.
Could such an optimistic outlook lead to a longer life? According to a series of studies from the U.S. and Europe, the answer is yes. Optimism helps people cope with disease and recover from surgery. A positive outlook also has a positive impact on overall health and longevity.

Says Molly Forrest, CEO-President of the Los Angeles Jewish Home, "Seniors at the Jewish Home inspire us with their desire to improve their lives and the lives of others. We wish them all the best in 2018."
