33 Is the magic number!

33 Is the magic number!  – 02/04/2012

Think back to the happiest time in your life. According to a new survey, that time might be when you’re 33 and if you haven’t hit that magic number yet, that’s something to look forward to.

A study by Friends Reunited, a British social-networking site, found 70% of respondents over the age of 40 claimed they weren’t truly happy until they reached 33.

In the survey’s findings, a psychologist said it’s that age when most people have “shaken off childhood naïveté and the wild scheming of teenaged years without losing the energy and enthusiasm of youth,” British psychologist Donna Dawson said.” without losing the energy of youth.

“By this age innocence has been lost, but our sense of reality is mixed with a strong sense of hope, a ‘can do’ spirit, and a healthy belief in our own talents and abilities.”

The reports also mentions that on the other hand, only 16% of the survey’s respondents longed for their childhood, while 6% said they were happiest while in college.

Many of the survey’s respondents said their happiness at 33 was because of career fulfilment — and a third said they were happiest when they had children.
