A report from the Office of National Statistics suggests that, on average, we are at our most miserable during our middle aged years. Where younger people and the over 65s tend to be more satisfied with life, people aged 45 to 54 report a lower level of personal well-being than any other age group. Anxiety levels are also higher among middle aged people.
