THIS Is The Age You ' ll Know True Happiness ( Says Science).

So at what age are we the happiest? Happify came up with an unexpected answer.

According to Happify, an app that focuses on people enhancing their happiness through exercise and games, at age 18 people are actually quite happy. However, that dips in the middle years with 53 being the lowest point of happiness. Then once again, happiness increases as you approach 60 (huge gap, right?). But wait, that's not it! From then on, happiness continues to rise until 85 (the oldest age studied).

But we're thinking it's good news that happiness rises as you age because it was also found that those who stay positive live 7.5 years longer. (Looks like the "grumpy old person" stereotype just isn't true!)

There are a few reasons given to why people get happier as they get older. One is simply that, happy people live longer and two, it has been found that as people age they enjoy "ordinary" experiences more. Essentially, people over 55 become more satisfied with their life through family, health, and home. Lastly, according to You Can Retire Sooner Than You Think, happy retirees pick up interests like volunteering, traveling, or teaching — activities that they once didn't have the time or energy to pursue.

  How Many Minutes' Exercise Will Make You Happy? Scientists have pinpointed the minimum amount of exercise needed to boost a person's mood.Researchers at the University of Michigan set out to investigate if exercise can promote a positive mental attitude in the same way that it reduces negative mental health symptoms. As little as 10 minutes of physical activity per week was found to make a "significant difference" to a person's mood.

New research looks at happiness at different ages , showing it to peak in our early twenties and old age , and hitting its lowest in our early 50. " This is the worst day of my life,” Bart Simpson complains at one point in the Simpsons movie. “The worst day of your life so far,” Homer gently corrects.

I guess the end goal for all of us in our middle age is to be able to retire and truly enjoy the small beauties (important aspects) of life — as many of us have taken for granted throughout our youth. If this is true, we no longer have to cling to nostalgia and my dwindling youth, because the best years are still ahead.
