The happiest part of life for most people is when they are at the age of 33, according to a survey.

Seven out of 10 over the age of 40, polled for Friends Reunited, picked the year they turned 33 as their most contented and rewarding.

More than half (53%) said life was more fun, while 42% felt more optimistic about the future.

Life seemed stress-free for 38% and 31% thought that was the time their family was closest together.

Only six per cent said they were happiest at university and just 16% in childhood, the poll found.

“The age of 33 is enough time to have shaken off childhood naivety and the wild scheming of teenaged years without losing the energy and enthusiasm of youth,” the Daily Express quoted Psychologist Donna Dawson as saying.

“By this age innocence has been lost but our sense of reality is mixed with a strong sense of hope, a ‘can do’ spirit and a healthy belief in our own talents and abilities.

“We have yet to develop the cynicism and world-weariness that comes with later years,” Dawson explained.

Family and friends were the biggest joy with one in three happiest with children. One in five said happiness came from success at work.
