Most people have some regrets in life, whether about career choices, romantic relationships or things they wish they had, or hadn't done. Researchers from Concordia University in Montreal looked into regret in a study of 104 adults. The participants completed a survey about their greatest regrets, were asked how they thought the severity of their regrets compared to other people's and were asked about their health. People's age did not determine how effectively they dealth with their regrets but those who felt their regrets were worse than other people's felt worse overall and were more likely to report cold symptoms over the next few months.
