Mid-life crisis is a miserable truth
MIDDLE-AGED people are the least happy, reveals a major new report.
Many struggle with the “double responsibility” of caring for children and elderly parents, the study from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found.
Even pensioners aged over 90 report better life satisfaction and happiness than those aged 40 to 59.
Experts analysed personal wellbeing data for more than 300,000 adults in the UK, collected over three years from 2012 to 2015.
People aged 65 to 79 reported the highest average levels of personal wellbeing, while those aged 40 to 59 were struggling.
Measures of wellbeing, included life satisfaction, feeling whether what you do is worthwhile, happiness and anxiety.
