Our happiness is high in our youth,
 starts to trail off by the time 
we are just twenty-five and 
doesn't pick up again until we retire...
our happiest times are when our lives are simplest, 
and the pressures of expectation from 
work and family commitments are their lowest. 
 That leaves forty years in between – 
the period when we are considered to be 
in our mental and physical prime,
 but during which too many of us settle for 
being 'crazy busy' and just moderately happy...
Do we really want to defer 
living life at its best until we retire?
