    Middle age begins at 35 and ends at 58

    Middle age begins in your mid-30s and ends in your late 50s, a new survey finds.

    http://www.telegraph...ends-at-58.html

    According to a study, the average Briton believes that youth ends at 35 and old age begins at 58. In between - all 23 years - is your middle age.

    The news that 58 is "over the hill" may come as a surprise to anyone who has passed the milestone and feels they are not yet in the twilight of their lives.

    They include Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the glamorous actress Jane Seymour, who are both full of energy at 59. Kathryn Bigelow, 58, has just won an Oscar for directing the action-packed movie The Hurt Locker.

    The finding that we regard people in their fifties as getting doddery, despite the evidence that older people are living more active lives than ever, was revealed by academics from the University of Kent to a meeting of the Economic and Social Research Council, in London.

    Professor Dominic Abrams, who studied data from 40,000 people across Europe, said: "The survey showed that age prejudice – being treated as "too young" or "too old" – is perceived to be a serious or very serious issue by 63 per cent of respondents, so it is obviously important to know what these age labels mean to people."

    A survey asked: when does youth end and old age begin? For the UK, the average response was that you stop being young at 35, and start being old at 58.

    But the figures also showed that opinions differed among the age groups. Younger people, those aged 15 to 24, thought youth ended at just 28 and old age began at 54.

    Not surprisingly, people in their eighties were more generous. They regarded the final year of youth as 42, and the onset of old age as 67.

    Professor Abrams, a psychologist, added: "This evidence shows that what counts as young and old is very largely down to the age of the beholder."

    Men regarded the end of youth and start of old age to begin two years earlier than women did, according to results from the European Social Survey.

    There were also large differences among European countries. Youth was perceived to end earliest among the Portuguese; they said it was at 29, while in Cyprus it was 45. The Portuguese also thought old age began was 51 – whereas Belgians believed it took at lot longer, at 64.

    The population of the UK is ageing. Sixteen per cent of us are 65 or older, and for the first time that age group outnumbers people under 18.

    The BBC newsreader Moira Stewart reportedly lost her job, when she turned 58, for being regarded as too old.

    The motivation behind the post was that I started being old at 58 today (13 Mar 2014).

    i have seen cars as old as FX nad Foxy in better conditions than how my car works, being less than a year or two old.

    reason is clear, i am a reckless human, who handles things roughly and with no stable maintence programes....while the ones with great shaped older assets take care of stuff like there babies.

    most people, in paksitan, take care of there bodies pretty badly....o here, old age arives at 40 or 45, youth leaves at 30 or 35.

    have seen europeans @ 60 much fitter than i have seen peole here in 50s.....

    reasons

    bad health care
    bad food
    lack of excersie
    made health coverage
    stress factors
    etc etc

    For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

    how good are we in taking care of ourselves..my personal experince is seeing peopel around me

    every year when i go for my comprehensive check ups....first question every doctor asks, are you here due to some problem, and when i say NO, just usual, i see a surprise look on there faces.

    same question usualy people on same routine, (mostly in 60s or late 60s ) ask, aap ko bhi koi masla hai..and when i say no, they have a guilty like look, ke hum tu majbori me aye hain....and i say, aap ko majbori say pehlay ana chayie tha....even when you can easily afford it...as mostly i have seen there at top tier, executives or directors....but didnt bothered till then were mid 60s

    we avoid hospitals, and tests till , ALLAH forbid, we are at last satges in a illness, or find really hard to work normally untill medicial intervention is requried.

    regual dental, eye and full body checkups are not even doen by teh elites here, what to say of middle and lower middle class.

    atleast basic blood tests that cost not more than a 1,000 frmo a decent labarotory, are done...which i guess once a year can easily be afforabdle.

    i see peopel not even go for proper vacinations..(specilay the costler ones )

    and suffer more than that in later ages
