A new study coordinated by professors at the University of Toronto found that Canadian boomers have an edge over millennials when happiness is in discussion. Three-quarter of Canadians born between 1947 and 1963, the so-called baby boomers, are “in complete optimal mental health”. In simpler terms, it means that they are happy almost every day. By comparison, 68 percent of the millennials, that is Canadians born between 1982 and 1997, reported being happy. Those who belong to the Generation X are also very happy, at 71 percent.
According to the study, boomers have more financial stability than the younger generation, and they are involved in stable relationships, both of which contribute to their overall degree of happiness. The study also revealed that women tend to be happier than men.
The results of the study didn’t quite come as a surprise, as Canadians are known for their cheerfulness and their positive attitude towards life.
