We know a lot about what gets worse as you age, but we don't talk about what often gets better. What if being over 50 is better than being young? What if it's the best time of your life? Niels Chr. Geelmuyden, himself in his 50s, writes with humour and warmth about what we can look forward to once we have made it to 50, based on research and his own and others' experiences.
The middle of your life is much better than many people think, or so he concludes.
Here are some of the things you can look forward to once you have made it to 50:
catching fewer colds
being a better mediator
being more positive and balanced
being more empathetic
being more perserverant
You will find the other 45 benefits in this joy of a book.
