Here’s The Peak Age For Beauty, Happiness, Salary And More

Peak age to make a Nobel prize-winning discovery: 40.

Youth is wasted on the young, that’s for sure. But life is not all downhill after you turn 30. In fact, according to science, humans hit different peaks throughout their lives.

Our salaries are highest around age 40, and our arithmetic skills are best at 51, for instance. And get this—life satisfaction peaks at the ripe old age of 69. So, whenever you start feeling like you’re past your prime, just remember the best is likely yet to come.

when you peak at everything

Here are a few peaks you have to look forward to as you age!

Age 7

This is a great time to learn a new language. If you want your children to be bilingual, they need to start practicing long before high school Spanish or French class.

Age 18 and Age 22

Brain processing power peaks at age 18, which is perfect timing for high school grads heading off to college. Remembering names peaks at 22 (or 23-24), just in time for all that networking you’ll need to do as you start your career.
