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:
- Financial security
- Good health
- Seeing their grandchildren growing up
- Avoiding stress
- Family Time
- Seeing children happily married
- 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.
