Life begins at 54

2nd September 2010

According to new research, life begins at 54 rather than 40.

A new report says that almost one million 45 to 54-year-olds are unhappy with their lives - making their age group the most frustrated in the country, the study found. However at 54, more Britons describe themselves as "happy" and "content" than "stressed" and "self-conscious" for the first time, while 71% of over 65s are content with their lot. The work was carried out for online bank First Direct.
