Getting Older: Are We Having Fun Yet?

It’s good news any time someone dispels a myth about getting older. So we’re happy to share this report of a survey that found widespread happiness about life after 65.

Half the people in the survey of 2,000 65 to 84 said they feel younger than 50. They also:

  • Stopped caring what people think about them at 43;
  • Say the best part of aging are having time to do what they want;
  • And report that they’re enjoying retirement.

All of that’s in contrast to the old idea that older people are sad about their lives.

“Baby boomers are reinventing what it means to age, and they resent those outdated stereotypes of older adults,” says Keira Krausz, chief marketing officer at ClearMatch Medicare, which commissioned the survey. “They’re not letting their age interfere with their quality of life because the best years of their lives are still ahead of them.”

The survey also reinforced something we’ve known for a long time: That “older” people are not afraid of technology, computers, and social media. In fact, 58 percent of those polled are on social media, and more than half know enough about online scams to have their guard up.

“Baby boomers are reinventing what it means to age, and they resent those outdated stereotypes of older adults,” says Keira Krausz, chief marketing officer at ClearMatch Medicare, in a statement. “They’re not letting their age interfere with their quality of life because the best years of their lives are still ahead of them.”

What about you? Are you enjoying this stage of life? Remember, regular exercise helps!
