Priorities for over-50s

stick_figure_blue_family_umbrella_1600_wht_1884Forget Botox and blue rinses. The new over-50s say they feel better than ever and don’t care what people think.

A quarter of them say they feel at least 10 years younger than their real age.

They were asked by Silversurfers.com, a lifestyle website for over-50s about their priorities.

They listed the most important things as:

  1. Financial security
  2. Good health
  3. Seeing their grandchildren growing up
  4. Avoiding stress
  5. Happiness
  6. Family Time
  7. Fulfilment
  8. Travelling
  9. Seeing children happily married
  10. Helping children buy their own home

The results suggest that as people get older they become more confident and stop worrying about things they can’t change.

More than a third said their spouse was the most important person in their lives and almost a half said they felt younger than their parents felt at the same age.
