“Always live in the here and now!”


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

39, white, works in education

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

In a house with my wife

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

My son, my wife, my sister

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

No idea

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Be physically active, stay mentally active even in retirement

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Private pension plan

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

For my family

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?

Always live in the here and now!
