Lighter as We Go

Research studies indicate that older people generally are happier than younger people, writes David Brooks in a column in the December 9, 2014, issue of The Dallas Morning News.

As you grow older, you learn that most setbacks are not the end of the world and that anxiety is the biggest waste in life.

Brooks quotes from the book Lighter as We Go by Jimmie Holland and Mindy Greenstein: “The ability to grow lighter as we go is a form of wisdom that entails learning how not to sweat the small stuff, learning how not to be too invested in particular outcomes.”
