Once I got rid of all the stress in my life (husbands, toxic workplaces, toxic family members, etc), I feel soooo much younger and happier!

Emotionally and mentally I feel younger than my 65 years. Physically, that's a different story. I try to keep young at heart. I'm the one you'll see singing at the top of my lungs to rock and roll in the car, and not stop because someone is watching 😀

I am 65. I have seen people in their 60s wasting away in nursing homes. Very sad. I had my three children late - I was in my 40-50s. I think they have kept me young.

I am in my 70's, but I don't usually feel much different than when I was about 30. Sometimes my knees don't agree...

Younger mentally. I have always kind of felt the same age. My grandma way into her 90s was always young at heart and I feel like I'm the same way.

I feel younger in my mind, but not always in my body.

In my mind I am young. Age has begun to limit my physical ability. Vertigo & bone loss limit activity.

Had a heart attack at 47 and with the side effects from meds it's just been all downhill from there.

I have been through a lot of medical issues, and have never recovered fully from one. Combined with side effects from medication I must take, I'm just exhausted all the time and physically disabled.

I thought it tasted just like meat. I have gastrointestinal issues, so this is a great alternative.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!
