Happiness is the reward of old age

Those of us who may feel threatened by the unstoppable march of time—tracking any new winkle and gray hair in the bathroom mirror—will take heart in learning that people over 60 typically report feeling happier than their younger counterparts. According to the happiness experts at the American startup Happify, 73-year old people (on average) report the same level of excitement about life as 18 year-olds do. And they keep getting happier with each passing year after that. The link between emotional health and physical health has been well established by now. Hopefully, by cultivating happiness now, regardless of our birth date, we may help ensure that we become—even help boost—the stats.
