We are at our youngest the most happy, motivated, enjoy things but that fades slowly (depending on who) with age as wisedom, confidence goes up.

As we age there is a loss of dopamine in our brain. This neurotransmitter is related to motivation, the search for rewards, the desire to start new projects, etc.

Some of the personality traits related to longevity such as impulsivity, low neuroticism or openness to new experiences, curiously are also related to dopamine (De Young)

The discoverer of Deprenyl and Selegiline, Joseph Knoll investigated how dopamine influenced the possibility of prolonging life. Degrading the MAO-B enzyme allows more dopamine to be available in the brain, keeping the initiative and the will to live constant, the drive to create and discover.

Aging means stopping enjoying the things that motivated us, losing our ikigai, stopping loving and falling in love, and all these behaviors depend on the amount of dopamine in our brain.

As a psychologist I have spent many years researching aging and dopamine. The result of this research is my book "Dopamina el arma secreta contra el envejecimiento" (Dopamine: the secret weapon against aging) that at the moment is not translated into English. DOPAMINA: EL ARMA SECRETA CONTRA EL ENVEJECIMIENTO (dopaminaging.com)

"We are at our youngest the most happy, motivated, enjoy things but that fades slowly (depending on who) with age as wisdom, confidence goes up."

 

Why do you think so? I wouldn't go back to my youngest years for anything. Stress, worries, confusion, self-consciousness, unreasoned decisions, poor judgement... kept me less than happy, less than motivated, and are just a few of the limitations of being young.

 

When younger, I only thought I had more wisdom, more motivation. Now I more correctly know my level of wisdom and confidence. IMHO Age brings better, more realistic self assessment.

When were at our youngest we have most life-energy force and brain cells which decline and meditation (learn to use your brain, mind and deep thinking etc) helped me. Also pushing trough pain, when I'm tired I keep going, I purposely put myself in anxious situations, force myself to find boring things enjoyable and focus always and aware, and always see things as if it is the first time seeing it or hearing. And pursue different hobbies seriously but at the same time not too serious and humor kept. I try to think like (how they view the world so positively etc) an baby/kid in some ways and aspects but at the same time the benefits of being adult.

Our moods affect what we wanna do. Some moods you wanna listen to music other times you wanna listen to people talk and learn. It's about finding a way to stay on a similar balanced mood to want to do everything. Our moods are higher younger we like everything all the time. never bored. longer you can withstand things like pain or not being around people (social) without losing your mind(moods) etc
