Over 35s Are The Happiest People

Some people say that college is the best years of your life, but that may apply more to the professors than the students at this point.

New research reveals Millennials are miserable and peopleover the age of 55 are living their best lives. What’s gone wrong?

  • A quarter of over 55-year olds experience at least 13 enjoyable things a month
  • Only 1/10th of 25- to 34-year olds experience that many enjoyable things a month
  • Then there’s the 18- to 34-year olds. They’re twice as likely to cancel a fun event or social occasion due to work commitments compared to baby boomers.
  • Younger adults work more overtime and spend less time socializing
  • And for the plain ole “grown ups?” People over the age of 35 say they’ve stopped worrying about the smaller things in life

Jo Hemmings, a behavioral psychologist says “as we get older and wiser, the realization that life is too short to worry so much means more are saying "carpe diem" to life. It's a common phenomenon that you start to care less about what other people think as you age, which clearly leads to a happier lifestyle."
