Why? Older adults are better able to avoid stressful situations, which could mean they experience less negative emotions. They also appear to spend less time dwelling on the negative aspects of a situation, which leads to a greater feeling of happiness. In other words, like fine wine, we simply mellow as we age.

Too bad we didn’t know in our 20’s what we know now!
