Sometimes, life can get you down at the half way point….
Just ask humans….and apes too?!?!
Scientists have published a study stating that humans tend to be unhappiest in their 40's. This low point comes after a peak in the 20's, and before another peak in the 70's.
In the same study, zoos surveyed over 500 chimps and orangutans on happiness and shockingly, apes experience the same U-shaped happiness range.
However, the researchers aren't patting themselves on the back just yet. They admit that a human bias may be affecting the results as happiness is subjective and it is being observed by a human perspective.
Still, it's good to know we're not the only species going through things!
But apes won't be buying Ferraris anytime soon! LOLz!
