To the chagrin of the youthful and impatient among us, the study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that older people were much happier than millennials, and their age appears to be deciding factor.
The research was conducted by the San Diego School of Medicine, University of California, and looked at the well being of 1546 adults aged between 21 and 100. The psychiatrists measured the participant's cognitive function, physical health, and other indicators of a person's well being.
The findings showed that despite physical ailments being more common in the elderly participants, their mental health was much better. Fewer of the older people involved expressed feelings of anxiety, depression or stress, compared to ones aged between 20-30.
