Survey Finds Those Over 50 Are Less Stressed
Date:5/17/2010

Aging may actually help folks take it easier, be happier, researcher says

MONDAY, May 17 (HealthDay News) -- Although your body might start to show the sad signs of aging after you hit 50, a new survey suggests your spirits may actually lift as the years go by.

On average, people reported being less worried once they passed the half-century mark, and less stressed and angry in the years after their 20s. Perhaps most surprisingly, people in their 70s and 80s were the most likely to report fewer negative emotions.

Stone and colleagues came to these conclusions after examining a 2008 Gallup phone survey of more than 340,000 people who live in the United States.

As in previous research of its kind, this survey showed that people were generally most happy with their lives in their younger and older years, with a dip in mid-life, Stone said.

In general, people were more stressed and angry in their 20s, and their levels of stress and anger declined all the way through their 80s. "It formed a nice line," he said.

"For worrying, it was an even different pattern," he s
