You Really *Are* As Old As You Feel

According to recent study, the age-old adage "You are only as old as you feel" may be dead-on. According to a study conducted by Purdue University (Indiana), those who consider themselves old suffer a plethora of downsides associated with old age, while those who maintain a younger outlook on life do not. The researchers compared participants' actual, chronological age with their "subjective" age to determine which had a greater effect on their brain functions and mental activity.

The study determined that though your actual age does matter, your outlook makes all the difference.
