100YOs Only Feel 83 On Average

Age truly is just a number, according a survey of centenarians and Baby Boomers, both of whom say they feel younger than their actual ages. Centenarians, on average, say they feel 83 years young, while the 65-year-old Boomers surveyed, on average, feel a full decade younger at 55, according to a new survey by insurance company UnitedHealthcare. When asked how they feel about living to 100, centenarians' top answers were "blessed" (36%), "happy" (31%) and "surprised" (12%). Not one selected feeling sad or burdened; just 3% said they felt lonely. And more than half (53%) live independently, without the support of a caregiver to help them with their daily activities/USA Today. More here.

Question: How old are you? How old do you feel?
