Baby boomers seem to have a secret. They are getting happier as they get older. Adam Davey, a psychologist at Temple’s College of Health Professions and Social Work, said, “There’s an idea that has gained support that we become better at emotion regulation as we get older.” It may also be, Davey said, that as we age, we learn to cope with some situations not by trying to change them but by rethinking how we relate to them.
