Actual research, and people, show things aren’t predisposed to get worse as you age, they can get better. Andrea Combes for MarketWatch.com reports a majority of people in their 60’s and 70’s are healthy, in control of their lives, and also as happy as people in their 40’s. Those who are older don’t worry about their future finances as a younger person would. In a study, 42% of the respondents in their 40’s said they have no worries about coping with retirement in the future.

The contribution that people are making, giving back to society, family or community, is supported by the fact that people are generally healthy and feeling it. Among U.S respondents, 79% of people in their 70’s work because they want to, not because they have to.
