Unexpected sources of life satisfaction

The young have so much more to look forward to than the elderly, yet ratings of life satisfaction actually rise slightly with age, up to age sixty-five, and, in some studies, well beyond.

People are often surprised to hear that the old are happier than the young because the old have so many more health problems, yet people adapt to most chronic health problems…

People who live in cold climates expect people who live in California to be happier, but they are wrong.

People believe that attractive people are happier than unattractive people, but they, too, are wrong.
