And one wonders why all you DemoLibs are always ranting and raving - come on - join the 'happy' side - start seeing sunrises vs. sunsets, instead of moaning all the time and blaming everything on Republicans - come into our world and live a longer, healthier and more satisfying life.
"I want to die young at a ripe old age." - Ashley Montagu
"It is never too late to have a happy childhood."
"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." - A. Lincoln
"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." - A. Lincoln
And as for older women being less "happy" than older men - perhaps Ambrose Bierce said it best when he wrote: "Bride, n. A woman with a fine prospect of happiness behind her."
Happiness Is ... Being Old, Male and Republican
Americans grow happier as they age, surveys find. And a new Pew Research Center survey shows the tendency is holding up as the economy tanks.
And even before the economy got nasty, seniors were found to be generally happier than Baby Boomers . Some of that owes to the American Dream being lived by past generations, while Boomers work two jobs and watch the dream wither.
In times like this, it's clear how age can have its advantages. While not all seniors are weathering the recession well, for many the impact is much less severe than it is for younger people.
Why? Many people 65 and older retired and downsized their lifestyles before the economy imploded, according to Pew analysts. Most aren't raising kids and many are not so worried about being laid off. Loss of income can be, of course, a source of stress and displeasure. (While money doesn't buy happiness, a study in February showed cash can help , especially when people use it to do stuff instead of buy things.)
