 35 is the New 40 of Middle Age: Economic, Healthcare, Stress Coming Early
According to a new report, stress related to economy and healthcare are contributing towards an early onset of middle age, making 35 as the new 40.

Research by the Philips Center for Health and Well-Being found that the milestone that once marked middle age has been lowered by five years.

"Thirty five is the new 40 as Americans feel the pressures of middle age earlier than ever," The Telegraph quoted the Amsterdam-based centre as saying in a statement.

Katy Hartley, the director of the centre, added: "The data suggests the new age for middle age is 35."

Nearly 80 per cent of the 1,503 Americans quizzed for the Philips Index revealed that they had economic worries while three-quarters said they were concerned about healthcare.

But most people turned to family and friends to help them improve their health and well being, while job and salary were far less important, according to the index.
