Changes with age – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Recent research by NIH-funded scientists has shown that happiness and well-being increase after middle age.
Bernard: Happiness or well-being is dynamic throughout life, and it appears that after age 50 or so things get better.
Narrator: Dr. Marie Bernard, a deputy director at an NIH institute, says it’s a good thing to be a baby boomer.
Bernard: You have less than the way of stress and anxiety. You have less than the way of worry.
Narrator: Baby boomers, people born between 1946 and 1964 are starting to turn 65 this year. For more about them, happiness and well-being, and age-related research, visit www.nia.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
