Never past your prime! 13 peaks we reach at 40 or later

Never past your prime! 13 peaks we reach at 40 or later

A recommendation completely unrelated to my own age: a list of good qualities we peak at beyond age 40. Some interesting ones: Our arithmetic skills peak at around 50, we’re nicest to others after reaching 60, our confidence in our own body is highest at 74 for women and 80 for men, and peak happiness comes at the tender age of 82. On average, that is.
