The Relationship of Happiness and Age: A Surprising Finding (Study, in PsychCentral)

“The surprising finding is that people increase in happiness until around 30 then happiness heads downward into midlife and then back up again to higher levels after the 50’s.  This U-bend of happiness seems to hold true even across cultural differences.  People are the least happy in their 40’s and 50’s with the global low point being 46 years. Past middle age there seems to be growing happiness into the later years that occurs regardless of money, employment status or children.”
