Over 50s Say They've Become More Daring Trying Skiing, Skydiving, Marathons, and Even...• https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org
The poll, of 2,000 adults over 50, found that 62 percent are keen to embrace things now, more than they used to.
47 percent have a new outlook on life. Writing a book, taking up skiing, or conquering a mountain are among the things on their list—confirming that 53 percent of respondents believe 'age is just a number'.
Many want to become fluent in a new language and others want to finally learn how to play an instrument they've always wanted to try.
Ryan Howsam, founder and CEO at Staysure, which commissioned the survey, said, "It's great to see people of this age adopting a zest for life and fulfilling life-long ambitions."
"As the research suggests, this is because they now have more time for themselves and feel ready to take on new challenges."
More than half (52 percent) think it's important to have aspirations, and three in 10 are more likely to fulfill these now that they are at a later stage in life.
