Age is nothing but a number, but the prime of your life might be later than you think.

Youth may be wasted on the young, but apparently life is fullest in your late thirties. In a new poll of 2,000 Americans, participants said that they “peaked” (or would peak) at age 37, news agency South West News Service (SWNS) reports.

Though the teenage and twenty-something years traditionally get all the hype, 34% of respondents predicted their prime will be at 46, or older. While tomorrow is a mystery, a hopeful two in three people polled believe their best years are yet to come.

However, life’s a balance – 64% said they’ve struggled to achieve a goal because of worries, while a close 60% said the pandemic has delayed them from succeeding with something.

“When people feel good about themselves, it creates a level of positivity and motivation that extends into all facets of their lives,” Jameson Rodgers, CBDfx co-founder, said of the findings, per SWNS. “The uncertainty and upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has led many people to look inward and redefine what happiness and success look like for them, whether it’s financial stability, a dream job, better physical fitness or positive mental health.
