Why Age Will Always Be Just A Number

Standing on a mountain top

Happiness. Is it just me, or has it been the buzziest idea of the past decade? As I’ve transitioned from my mid-twenties to my mid-thirties, I’ve witnessed an endless parade of books, podcasts, documentaries, college courses—all touting the notion of happiness as an aspirational, almost-mystical ideal. Something to chase and admire in others (“Didn’t you hear, Finland is the happiest country in the world!”) and maybe, just maybe, catch a glimpse of someday.

But I am rejecting all of that. While researchers commonly point to a U curve that suggests we’re happiest in our early and later years, I tend to believe that happiness is more of a decision than a result. Sure, we can’t always choose our circumstances, but we can choose our thoughts about them. With help from researchers and wellness experts, writer Aimee Heckel explores all the ways happiness is available right now, no matter your age.

Age is, after all, a tricky construct. Just ask the five young yoga teachers featured in our Next Gen Yogis package.

Blissful ignorance is no longer a privilege of youth (and for many of us, it never was).
