Abstract

Introduction: The satisfaction with the life in university professors will have an important value for the personal evaluation of themselves on the quality of their own experiences and in addition to a well-being of personal feeling. Aim: to determine Satisfaction with life and its relationship with mental health in professors of a university in North Lima. Methods: a quantitative, descriptive and cross-sectional study, with a population of 270 older adults, who answered a questionnaire of sociodemographic aspects and the scale of satisfaction with life. Results: 54 (20%) of the older adults were dissatisfied with life, 32 (11.9%) slightly dissatisfied, 39 (14.4%) are neutral with respect to life satisfaction, 84 (31.1%) are satisfied, and 50 (18.5%) are very satisfied. Conclusions: educational talks should be held for the elderly, where the experience of positive emotions during that stage of life continues to be promoted and allows them to have a better satisfaction with their lives.
