Chart showing happiness at different ages

Don’t feel happy? Just wait

Throughout our working age lives, about half of us aren’t happy, according to a new study by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave.

The percentage of people who are happy hovers near 52 percent until retirement approaches, the study found. Looking for happy people? Look for 65+ where about three quarters of people are happy.

If you think millennials are more apt to be anxious, you are apparently right. The most anxious age group is the 25-34 age group with 37 percent stressed. Only about 17 percent of retirees are stressed.
