A new survey of 1-thousand adults over 50 asks their thoughts on getting older and what they like best about life after the big 5-0. As far as concerns about aging, the top four are physical health, mobility, mental health and appearance. However 68% of those surveyed said life is better after 50 than before it. In 2000 only 47% thought that their life was better after 50.
