Friends the key to long life

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you want to live to be 100, experts say the key is to be a social butterfly and don't sweat the small stuff. 

Boston University researchers studied the personality traits of people whose parents had reached their 100th birthdays. Researchers focused on children of centenarians, because previous studies have shown longevity runs in families. Adults whose parents had lived to 100 tended to be more outgoing, and placed strong value on friendships and also handled stress better than the average person did.
