Age is a state of mind as research shows 60 is the new 40

Thursday 16 April 2015

Commenting on new European research that shows that 60 is the new 40, with people reaching middle age at the tender age of 60, Saga's head of communications Lisa Harris commented:

Age is a state of mind as research shows 60 is the new 40

"Middle aged is most certainly a state of mind. In today's society we are living longer healthier lives and the face of later life is changing beyond all recognition. Retirement is no longer a cliff edge decision where we stop working purely because we've celebrated a birthday. Instead we change the way we work - often with the goal of achieving a more rewarding work life balance that allows us to feel both valued in the workforce for the skills and experience we have to offer and also gives us the opportunity to travel, take part in hobbies, volunteer and generally have a bit of fun too. It's not just about living longer.

"It’s about ageing well!"
