I love studies to do with people, and this one is particularly interesting to me.
So there was this huge study of 340,000 people, ages 18-85 in 2008
about aging that was reported in the New York Times.
OR it could even be biological…for example brain chemistry or endocrine changes.
I never even entertained the idea it could biological.
We are now at the top of the hill like my sister has said.
I love how the author of this study sums things up:
“It’s a very encouraging fact that we can expect to be happier in our early 80s
than we were in our 20s,” he said. “And it’s not being driven predominantly
by things that happen in life. It’s something very deep and quite human that seems to be driving this.”
And the ending of this article is the best:
"For people under 50 who may sometimes feel gloomy, there may be consolation here.
The view seems a bit bleak right now, but look at the bright side: you are getting old."
