(March 13, 2019) The Happiness Curve

Listen Now

On today’s show, Del reflects on his life and discusses a concept on which most psychologists agree: that life satisfaction follows a U-shaped curve. In other words, we’re happy when we are young, miserable during mid-life, and happy again once we approach our 60s. Research shows that this U-shaped curve holds true across nations, cultures, and income levels. But Del challenges this concept and asks,  “Can you really be happy in old age if you are not financially secure?” Listen in and let Del know your thoughts.
