Happiness Levels Highest Among 65-79 Year-Olds

People between the age of 65 and 79 are the happiest compared to other age groups according to the UK’s Office for National Statistics.
In a study of more than 300,000 adults across the UK, it was found that life satisfaction, happiness and feeling that life was worthwhile all peaked in the age bracket of 65-79 years but declined in the over-80s, BBC reported.
The survey also revealed that adults between the ages of 45 to 59 years reported the lowest levels of life satisfaction, with men on average less satisfied than women. This group also reported the highest levels of anxiety.
Researchers said that one possible reason for the lower happiness and well-being scores among this age group might be the burden of having to care for children and elderly parents at the same time. The struggle to balance work and family commitments might also be a factor, they said.
Meanwhile, those who were younger or retired had more free time to spend on activities which promoted their well-being, researchers suggested.
