You already know eating a balanced diet, getting your sweat on, and even drinking a little wine are key to living a long, happy, and youthful life. But what if we told you there’s something else that can help—and you’re probably already doing it?

People with dreams and goals for the future displayed a decreased risk of physical decline compared to those didn’t.

According to a new study by JAMA Psychiatry, maintaining a sense of purpose in life is linked to aging better. After analyzing data from a long-running study, researchers found that people with dreams and goals for the future displayed a decreased risk of physical decline compared to those didn’t. Furthermore, those who felt purposeful tended to have a higher walking speed—meaning their body functions about two-and-a-half years younger than it actually is.

So keep drinking those kombuchas and spinning into oblivion, but make sure to be mindful about what you want in life. You know, so you can live to tell your great-great-great grandchildren all your secrets.

Stay young at heart by traveling solo—maybe on a getaway to a dreamy geodesic dome.
