The Older, The Happier!
With age comes wisdom and now apparently happiness. Standford University’s Center on Longevity has released a study called ‘Emotional Experience Improves With Age,’ that reports older people are happier than younger people.
Contrary to the popular view that youth is ‘the best time of life’, the present findings suggest that our emotional well being peaks at around age 70. Older people were said to be grumpy, but this report says different.
Additional research from the University of Warwick in England suggests that our psychological well-being is U-shaped through life: we are born happy little babies, dipping into depressed midlife crisis adults, and curve back up to our happy place after we’ve had our CARP card for a while.
