The Happiness Curve – Why Life Gets Better After 50 – Great on Kindle title – $2.99 0 comments
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

Why does happiness get harder in your 40s? Why do you feel in a slump when you’re successful? Where does this malaise come from? And, most importantly, will it ever end?
Drawing on cutting-edge research, award-winning journalist Jonathan Rauch answers all these questions. He shows that from our 20s into our 40s, happiness follows a U-shaped trajectory, a “happiness curve,” declining from the optimism of youth into what’s often a long, low slump in middle age, before starting to rise again in our 50s.
This isn’t a midlife crisis, though. Rauch reveals that this slump is instead a natural stage of life—and an essential one. By shifting priorities away from competition and toward compassion, it equips you with new tools for wisdom and gratitude to win the third period of life.
The Happiness Curve doesn’t just show you the dark forest of midlife, it helps you find a path through the trees. Buy this Great on Kindle title for $2.99 today.
