The Ages Of Happiness

A survey of 2,000 people between the ages of five and 80 found that we are at our happiest at the ages of 9 and 68. 64% of those aged 68 and 80% of nine-year-olds said that having fun was a top priority in their lives.

Fun is not happiness, but it is a very important part of what makes life’s great moments. Children take the time to discover and play. They use their imagination to be creative and can enjoy the Now for what it is. 47% of the children surveyed believed that their grandparents were more fun and relaxed than other members of their family. That’s not surprising as those over the age of sixty also know how to embrace the moment. 34 percent of people in that age group listed activities like skydiving and surfing as things they “must do”.
