A research team at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) claimed that feeling loved as a teen results in better health in adulthood. The study is published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
The researchers surveyed data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. They assessed a number of psychological factors, namely, optimism, self‐esteem, belongingness, feeling loved and wanted, cardiometabolic health, etc.
The results revealed that feeling loved as a teen results in positive feelings and good health in adulthood. In fact, nurturing adolescent psychological assets guarantees positive cardiometabolic health (CMH) in later years.
