Middle Age — A time to slow
down? To look back? To despair?
Not at all! ft may be
the ' t> est age of all." The age
group between 40 and 60 makes
up almost a quarter of the U. S.
population, earns more than half
of our personal income and wields
considerable social power. Medical
progress has put off old age
so that the middle years occupy
a growing segment of the lifespan.
We don't call people old
as soon as we used to. At 50
we are still young! Middle age
is a period in which significant
emotional development can take
place. Do you keep moving outward,
or do you spend more
time in front of the television'
For a growing number of Americans,
middle age is truly " the
best time of life."
