Constantly plagued with anxiety? Don't worry — you just may live longer. So says a team of researchers from the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University, who studied 1,000 elderly women over the course of 15 years.

The team deduced that higher anxiety may have led the participants to be more active and health-conscious.

So to live your life with less anxiety and stress, try these tips, as recommended by The American Academy of Family Physicians.
