What Do You Think Is The Best Age?

I think 40 is great. There's a balance of physical fitness and wisdom to a certain extent. Mature, experienced, head-on-straight, goals set, and well on the way to goals. A person at 40 is young enough to be active and relatively free from health problems and old enough to know about life, people, and the world. What do you think is the best age?

I am 44 now. I think that the best age is your late teens and early twenties. That's youthful. I was in College during that time and that was the most fun years of my life.

Teens and early twenties are fun years. 44 is still young. You may have lots of interesting activities.

I think childhood is the best age. No worries, no tensions at all. And with age comes worries and problems. Though these teach a lot which makes us sensible enough to sort things out.

Yes, childhood is worry free. But once the kid started schooling, there are pressures.

@Beestring To some extent true but a lot depend on parents. There are people who don’t pressurise their kids. And even if they do, it is to teach them something. But still the worries are with parents and not with the kids.

@anamika161088 Yes, some of the pressure are from parents. But here, the teachers also put pressure on kids.

I think I like my 30s and 40s. Although financially I was not yet stable at my 30s since I just got married at that time. It was the happiest since in my 30s my son came and my family was starting to grow. In my 40s income was starting to get stable already, and family life was already established already. But in my 40s physically I felt a bit tired and aches on my body started to show. My eyes got blurry too that I need reading glass and eyeglass for distance.

@Beestring Although I also like my childhood days as it was carefree where I do not worry about anything about life. I just go on the play, sleep and eat and go to school and that was it. There were no boring days as you can do anything in your power to enjoy your day.

40 is a good age when it comes to wisdom and physically fit but my most fun years were in my 30s. Looking back each decade had it's good times

I think each age has its plusses and minuses. I probably had the most FUN at 27. I was in Graduate School, and was beyond "thinking I know everything." I was also nearing the height of my athletic abilities. But I'm a better guitar player and singer now than ever before, and also much wiser (and a bid sadder, in part because of that wisdom). I agree that 40 provides a nice balance.

It differs from person to person. Women mature faster than men. Some men are mature enough when they are young.

I would have said 25 or 30, but then you threw in the wisdom part, and I can't disagree that the wisdom that comes with age is invaluable. I will be 50 next June and 40 definitely looks better from here.

There is good and bad in all ages and cycles of life. When you're young, you want to be grown up. When you're grown up, you age a bit and suddenly realize, you would love to be young again. You have to just learn to enjoy all of the years you can, you won't ever get them back again. I don't have a favorite age. It takes all of us in our time to make good memories.

@Beestring Age is something we can't run and hide from. If you are alive, it's going to happen. We are all aging, every day.

I think the best age for me is around late twenties. You have enough work experience with a little experience in love and life as well. You get to the point you where you figure out what you really want and pursue the things you want to accomplish moving forward. You aren’t too young or too old to start any business or start another career.

I called myself lady of leisure when I gave up my job and spent time doing what I wanted to do. I think it has nothing to do with age but the period when one is the happiest. I was in my forties then.
