Mid-Life Crisis

Midlife Crisis

There could be something to that so-called mid-life crisis. 

An international study of 2 million people from 80 nations over a span of more than 35 years has found that men and women in their 40’s were more likely to be depressed and weren’t as happy as other ages with the general unhappiness bottoming out at about the age of 44. As for why this is they can only guess that it’s perhaps because when we reach our 40’s we come to the realization that our youthful dreams of fortune and success aren’t going to come true.

The good news is that the unhappiness scale seems to be ‘U’-shaped and we start getting happier again in our 50’s.
