While too many of us are afraid of growing older, it’s now proven that aging leads people to feel more satisfied with their lives.
“When we think of old age, we often think of decline and loss,” Claudia Haase, a professor of social policy at Northwestern and one of the study’s authors, said in a statement. “But a growing body of research shows that some things actually get better as we age.”
Buffalo University and Northwestern have both performed studies on this phenomena, and the surprising information they found was that older people tend to trust others more, leading to more happiness and well-being. “Trust may benefit well-being because a sense of trust in other people allows us to derive support, comfort and pleasure from our social relationships,” Haase said. “People who trust more are also happier. Moreover, our study shows that people who trust more are not only happier today, but they also experience increases in happiness over time.”
