Do you reminisce about your 20s, and wonder how you POSSIBLY had any worries back then? Because life was so wonderful and easy? Don’t worry, you’ll find that happiness again . . . once you’re really, really old.
A new study out of Australia analyzed people’s happiness over their lives. Here are the three things they found . . .
1. You’re happiest from ages 15 to 24. Then you start getting more miserable.
2. Things keep getting worse until your 40s, when it bottoms out and stays low.
3. Once you hit your 60s, you start getting happier again. And by 75, you’re as happy as you were when you were 20.
The researchers had one main conclusion: Responsibilities are the WORST. When you’re working, raising kids, and under stress, you’re the most unhappy . . . so in the ages before and after all that stress, life is great.

Lost Frequencies – Are You With Me (Official Music Video)
In 2014, Belgian DJ and producer Lost Frequencies took the music and the refrain from the song, speeding up the track and releasing it in October 2014 as a remix. The song reached number one on Belgium’s Ultratop Flanders chart and peaked at number two on Belgium’s Wallonia francophone chart. In July 2015, the single topped the charts in the United Kingdom, where it holds the distinction of having the shortest reign at the top of the UK Singles Chart of any single for 46 years due to the following chart being the first to be released on a Friday rather than a Sunday (before August 1969, this had occurred on a Wednesday), when it was replaced by David Zowie’s “House Every Weekend”. The song also topped the charts in other countries, including Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Australia and Austria.
There’s an old cliché that it’s better to look good than to FEEL good. I would say that counts as TERRIBLE advice . . . especially when someone takes it to the extreme like THIS.
A 35-year-old woman in Adelaide, Australia was recently helping a relative move . . . and she wore SUPER skinny jeans. She spent a few hours squatting to get stuff out of the kitchen cabinets and when she tried to walk right afterward, she COULDN’T.
Her calves were so swollen it was impossible to get the jeans off, and she had no feeling in her feet.
She was rushed to the hospital where they had to cut the jeans off . . . and she was there for FOUR DAYS before she could walk again.
The doctors who treated her said this should be a good warning about being careful with wearing skinny jeans . . . or at least being careful about what you do when you’re wearing them.
The modern non-confrontational way to DUMP someone is with a text message. But if you’re too much of a coward to even do THAT . . . this could be your answer.
A 37-year-old woman named Kristy Mazins in Melbourne, Australia just started a new business called Sorry It’s Over, where she’ll dump someone FOR you.
You tell her why you want to end things, and she’ll contact the person to gently but firmly deliver the news. She charges around $4.50 to text or email them . . . $10 to call them . . . or $55 to sit down with them face-to-face.
Kristy says she started the business when she realized the people today in their 20s are tech savvy . . . but terrible at confrontation.
She also says she’s got a knack for breaking up with people so they aren’t devastated. Quote, “I’m quite good at mediating people’s relationships. It’s a gift.” You can see more at her website, SorryItsOver.com.au.
