It’s so easy to get caught up in the never ending cycle of always wondering whether you are where you should be at your age. When were young, we expect by the age of 22, at the very latest, that we will already have purchased a home, have our career set, be married, and have a few children.
But that’s so incredibly unrealistic.
Most us at 22 still feel like a kid at heart, and are still figuring things out. And that’s totally ok, especially since science is here to back us up.
A recent study found that feeling younger than you actually are may be a sign that you have a healthier brain, with fewer age-related impairments, such as early signs of dementia.
If someone feels older than their age, it could be a sign that it’s time to evaluate their lifestyle.
So stop stressing. Go ahead, drive that sports car, go backpacking across the world, do a little dance, and enjoy all of the childhood goodness that you crave.
