When we’re young we want to be older, and when we’re old we want to be younger. But what’s the best age to be? According to surveyed Brits, it’s 35 years old. Here’s a glimpse of why and how life at 35 is so sweet.
The Best Age to Be
The Financial Picture at the Age of Contentment
Money might be one reason why people say 35 is the best age. People aged 35-44 typically have significantly greater monthly and annual gross household income compared to all age groups as a whole.
As we get older, our priorities and values change. While career is more important to younger adults and health is more important to older adults, financial stability is most important to people when they're 35.
FINANCIAL STABILITY NOW OR LATER?
Though financial stability is important to people around the age of 35, not many Brits are taking the steps needed to protect their family's economic future.

Now that I am 47 I think I was most content at 30 years old because I was mature and wise as well as having lots of energy.
