The number of daily stressors and people's sensitivity to everyday stressors diminishes with age, according to a recent study performed by David Almeida, professor of human development and family studies at Penn State. "There's something about growing old that leads to fewer stressors," said Almeida. The research team used data from the NSDE that collected detailed data on daily life from over 40,000 days in the lives of over 3,000 persons beginning in 1995.
