7 Things About Happiness That Could Save Your Life as You Age

By Jed Diamond, Ph.D.,  Men Alive (menalive.com) 

As I’ve gotten older, I find that I’m getting happier.I mean, every day isn’t perfect. I don’t like the aches and pains and the injuries that seem to pop in when I least expect them.But when I take survey of my life, I find some
interesting things:

  1. I continue to be in love with my wife, and I mean, really in love.
  2. I don’t get hurt as easily when she doesn’t seem to “love me” like I’d like.
  3. I’m happier in my own body and I find joy in keeping it healthy.
  4. I can watch our old civilization collapsing and also see signs that something more wonderful is being born.
  5. We may not make it as a human experiment on this planet, but I’m enjoying learning to live within our planetary constraints.
  6. Getting old is not as good as I’d hoped it would be.
  7. But getting older sure seems to allow for more happiness and joy in my life.

Will I really be happier in my 80s than I was in my 20s? Here’s a study that confirms my feelings.
