HAPPINESS AND AGE?
According to the February 2013 issue of Psychological Science, psychological well-being is linked to important life outcomes such as career success, relationship satisfaction, and health. Well-being tends to increase with age; however, when you were born can have a lasting impact on your overall sense of well-being. For example, people who grew up during the Great Depression started off with lower levels of overall well-being than their children who grew up during more prosperous times. As they aged, their overall sense of well-being increased but stayed below the following generation's levels at similar ages. Based on this data, researchers warn that people growing up in today's more challenging economic environment may experience similar long-lasting effects to their overall sense of well-being.
The key is to keep your head up and maintain a good perspective. WORK on your health and relationships, all else will follow.
Have a blessed day!
