The average duration of a healthy and happy life in Russia is specified

The length of a healthy and happy life is determined by the number of years that a person has lived without serious illness, as well as the degree of satisfaction with life. The results of a study conducted by the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation suggest that Russians live happily and without diseases for an average of 46.5 years, Vedomosti wrote.

The leaders in this indicator were Ingushetia - 54.9 years old, the Chechen Republic - 54, Dagestan - 53.8, Tatarstan and Moscow - 50.7 each. The lowest indices in Chukotka were 37.5 years, in the Jewish Autonomous Region - 40.5 years, in Orel Region - 42.3 years, in Bryansk Region - 42.7 years, in Magadan Region - 43 years.

The highest average duration of a healthy and happy life was in Switzerland - 66.2 years, in Sweden - 65.7, in the United States - 58.2.

The data on life expectancy without diseases were provided by Rosstat for 2019, and the level of life satisfaction was evalueted by the results of population surveys by the Finance University under the Government of the Russian Federation in 2018-2020.

The article also notes that the total life expectancy of newborns in Russia is estimated at 73.3 years. Of these, 13 years take away serious illnesses and another 13.8 years - discontent with life and despondency. Based on these data, we can conclude that despondency is an even greater factor in the decline in quality of life than serious illness. Scientists advise not only to monitor our health more closely, but also to avoid negative thoughts, moping and depression, because it can affect the overall life expectancy.
