You are only as old as you feel and today I feel like I’m physically about where my years say. But in my heart and mind I am still a spry young guy, and I hope that never changes.
I might walk a little slower and man do I have my fair share of aches and pains. I think sometimes I am childlike but not so much that I can’t think and act like an adult when I need to.
I read and collect comic books and action figures. I watch professional wrestling and even have a podcast with friends called Turnbuckle Trash (there is a link on the station website).
I keep up on the news (it is the adult thing to do) But I hate the political climate we are in. I might be childlike but politicians sometimes act like children who have their favorite toy taken away.
So why am I writing about this on my blog? It is because of something I read this morning. By the way it was a very adult thing to do, but I would have rather read a Batman comic. Here are some of the highlights
You’ve heard people say 50 is the new 40 . . . or even “70 is the new 40” But how much younger do we REALLY feel?
Well, the average American DOES feel younger than they really are. But not by much.
A new study published in Science daily looked at people all over the world to see what type of health issues the average 65-year-old is dealing with. And the average American doesn’t fit the profile of a 65-year-old until they’re 68-and-a-half. So there’s just a three-and-a-half-year divide.
The U.S. ranked 53rd in the world when it comes to feeling younger than you really are. Japan and Switzerland tied for first.
The average person in each of those countries doesn’t feel 65 until they’re just over 76. The rest of the top five are France, 76 . . . Singapore, 76 . . . and Kuwait, 75.
On the flip side, the average person in Papua New Guinea fits the health profile of a 65-year-old at age FORTY-SIX. The Marshall Islands are next at 51, then Afghanistan at 52 . . . Vanuatu, 53 . . . and the Solomon Islands, 53-and-a-half.
