The two happiest ages in life: unexpected research results

Although adolescence is usually considered the “heyday of life,” there are actually many reasons to wait for an older age. In the end, with time comes wisdom, skill, and maybe more satisfaction. So the scientists of the London School of Economics and Political Science came to the conclusion that people are most happy at two different ages in their lives - and these figures may surprise you.
In the course of the study, 23,000 people in Germany between the ages of 17 and 85 years old were surveyed on how satisfied they were with their lives in general. They were also asked to predict what would happen in their life in 5 years, and then, after 5 years, these same people were again asked about their level of happiness. The results allowed an unexpected conclusion.

According to the survey, the level of happiness over a lifetime - from 20 to 70 years old, moves along a U-shaped curve with a peak at 23 years and 69 years. Wow ... Could you suggest that a person can be happy at such a radically different age?

Well, if you think about it, it makes sense.At 23 most people go to their first job, take the first exciting and exciting steps in their career and adulthood. Meanwhile, in 69 many are already happily retiring and finding new satisfaction in life without work.

However, this does not mean at all that if you are already over 23, then now you have to wait for a pension to become happy. Just do not complain that the best years have passed. The same should not be done and pensioners.
