Older isn’t just wiser. It is happier too. Research shows that happiness and optimism peak in your 70s and 80s. People are often less happy in their middle years because they get bogged down in responsibilities and anxiety but then well-being rises for the rest of your life. Apparently older people do things they enjoy and cut out what makes them unhappy. Sounds like a plan. If you can’t quite manage that at least you know you have something to look forward to!
