Many Americans Feel Much Older Than Their Biological Age


Did the last year seem to take its toll on you? Or perhaps it was more than just the last 12 months, and the last couple of years have really added up and made you feel older.

Turns out, a lot of Americans are feeling older than their biological age.

While age may be just a number, a new study conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Kori Pure Antarctic Krill Oil found that most Americans in a certain age group, particularly, feel physically older than they really are. In the poll of 2,000 Americans ages 25 to 45, 64 percent of them said they feel physically older than their biological age. And I can definitely relate! This last year has simultaneously felt like 2 months and 4 years.

More than that, FOUR in 10 agreed they have inexplicable aches and pains. If you're nodding your heard along to this, you're definitely not alone.

I don’t know what it was about last year, but I experienced many more aches and just this weekend, Michael’s elbow swelled up out of nowhere! We feel like we’re falling apart!

And if you have little ones like my husband and I do, 34% said that parenting has aged them, too. Then again, I think we all knew that one!

But it's not just parenting that ages you... cooking a balanced dinner every night, budgeting and keeping the house clean are all things that age us mentally. Which are unfortunately also the things that we have to do to keep a balanced life!

We talked about how old we realllllly feel on the show, watch below:

The pandemic has deffffinitely made me feel older than ever before - I think because we’ve been cooped up in the house for so long, we just feel old because we’re not out and about doing our usual “young, fun activities."

I want to go to a concert on a week night, have a tequila and forget everything at home and work for just 5 minutes! It's all I ask.

What activity makes you feel the most young?!
