A new study out of Stanford University found that older people are happier than younger people, even during the pandemic.  The researchers surveyed roughly 1,00 people from 18-74 years old and ask them how often and how intensely they had felt 29 different emotions during the past week.  Older people admitted they were more at risk of getting COVID-19 than younger people, but surprisingly they also reported feeling more positive emotions than negative emotions than young people did.  One of the researchers suggests that when there is less time ahead of us, we focus on the good things.  As the phrase goes, life is short.
