How old do you feel? Your future depends on it
From the results of the latest research, the scientists concluded that how old you feel is much more important than your actual age. Why?
Most of us feel either younger or older compared to how old we really are. This subjective age strongly influences physical and mental health. From the results of the latest research, the scientists concluded that how old you feel is much more important than your actual age. Why?
Imagine for a moment that you have no birth certificate and your age is determined only by how old you feel. How much would you yourself give?
As your height and Shoe size, the number of years that have passed since your birth is an undeniable fact. But the fact is also that we all age differently, and many people feel older or younger than actual age.
Scientists recently have shown increasing interest in this feature. They found that our subjective age can be the key to understanding the reasons why some with age only flourish while others wither on the eyes.

Various studies have even shown that your subjective age may serve as a predictor of important changes in health, including the probability of death.
It turns out that the words “you as much as you feel” can be interpreted in the truest sense.
Newsthe light at the end: is there something between life and death
Now scientists are intrigued by these results, trying to select from a variety of biological, psychological and social factors are those that shape individual experiences of ageing, and then to understand how it can help us live longer and healthier.
A new understanding of the aging process has come far not at once and demanded decades of research. The earliest work on this subject began to appear in the 1970s.
But now the initial trickle of interest turned into a veritable flood. Over the past 10 years in many new studies, scientists are trying to understand the psychological and physiological consequences can lead this disparity in feeling and real age.
