You’ll Be Happiest At This Age, According To Research

According to a government survey conducted in the UK, the best is yet to come. The survey looked at data from 300,000 adults over a three-year period (between 2012 and 2015) and found people reported being happiest between the ages of 65 and 79.
So, while I may currently be as healthy as a horse and still have my youthful glow as a late 20-something, according to this new research, I won’t hit my highest life satisfaction level for over three decades. Now that’s something to think about.
Before you kick back, relax and think about how freakin’ excited you are to turn 65, consider this: You may hit a bump in the road in your mid-40s. According to the survey data, ratings of life satisfaction and happiness were lowest between the ages of 45 and 59.
Even people in their 90s reported being happier than grumpy middle-aged folks. Yikes.
Of course, this isn’t the first time the correlation between happiness and age has been studied. A 2014 survey found 58 was the happiest age of all, while research conducted last year found being 34 was actually ideal.
But whether you end up being your happiest at 34, 58 or 79, keep your head up. You’ve got a lot to look forward to.

  1. I don't agree with 34. I think 45 and above. 65 is actually ideal.

  2. Be happy always and at any age.

  3. I think one can be happiest at any age.its a question of choice not age

  4. This research is an indirect message to all adults to be satisfied at different spells of
    . Happiest moments can come to you by any time frame of age. so you should be happy always.
