Boomers are fitter than ever!!

People are considered to be in their “prime: during their 20’s, and they often accept that their physical fitness and health are meant to declare their age. Contrary to this belief, a recent report says that many people aged 50 and older feel healthier than ever. The research found that 17% of the 1,500 respondents “over 50” believe they are more fit now than they were in their 20’s. More than half believe they look younger than their age. This group also says that they eat more fruit and vegetables than they did in their earlier years.  The study was conducted by Engage Mutual, a financial institution in the United Kingdom.

[This study] challenges many of the preconceptions around aging and is good news when we consider that in light of increased life expectancy, many more of us will be spending larger portions of our life “over 50”.

Gives us all something to look forward to!
