Just when does middle age start? According to a study cited in Frontiers in Psychology, it depends upon the age of the person being asked.
For some in their 20’s who were polled, middle age began at 30. However, when the person being questioned was older, their view of when it started was generally later.
According to an analysis of this article, “people’s perception of old age changes as they age. Essentially, the older we get, the younger we feel.” Put another way, the older we are, the more convinced we become that there are still many years of vitality and usefulness left. Life can still be meaningful and purposeful.
All of which does not mean that we are free from the aches, pains and limitations of our advancing years. But the challenge is to live every day of our lives.
