Hugh: If you could be one age forever, what would you choose? The average person says 36.
A new poll finds that a majority of Americans believe the mid-30s is the best time in life and that 36 would be the perfect age at which to be frozen in time. While being in your 20s is an idealized time, 40 percent said they wouldn’t go back to being that age. The OnePoll survey found that 59 percent said they used to be obsessed with fighting the aging process, but 41 percent said they actively embrace it, and 71 percent said it’s become more common for Americans to accept and embrace their age. At the same time, more than half said they believe they not only look younger than their age, but feel younger too. Additionally, 63 percent plan to shift their focus from looking younger to feeling younger.
