70% of S'poreans over 50 feel younger

A study of 150 Singaporeans aged 50 and above revealed that 70 per cent of them feel younger than their real age. On average, they felt five years younger.

The recent study was conducted by healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). It revealed that only a third of Singaporeans are really concerned about growing older.

And even at their ages, 78 per cent felt that their lives were still ahead of them.

Respondents reflected that growing older is only giving them the opportunity to realise and spend more time on their passions and travels with family.

Mr Gijs Sanders, the general manager of GSK's consumer healthcare business here, said that the findings challenge traditional perceptions of ageing.
