Amongst old friends

By 13. January 2022No Comments

We should “spend time with people that make you feel good about yourself”.


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

38, workaholic

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

Old friends

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?


What is your sex and love life like in the future?

I maintain

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Read, write and walk, pilates

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

I saved for my pension

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?


If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Spend time with people that make you feel good about yourself
