Your Real Age
Health experts now agree that rather than enjoying two birthdays rather like our Queen, we in fact have two distinct ages – our ‘birth age’ and our ‘biological age’ this biological age being determined by how we treat ourselves.
So in a bid to find out a reasonable approximation of mine (as I no longer particularly enjoy celebrating my actual one..) I have done some online research and have found a few interactive calculators.
Frankly I have been pleasantly surprised by the results – having managed to knock between 6 and 4 years off.
I do however have slight reservations about my ability to give clear answers to some of the questions. On reflection it is quite likely that I have erred on the more positive response. OK, some of my responses may in fact have erred on the downright dishonest, but all the same it is quite thought provoking.

I have collected some of the links together for you to have a go! Do remember that this is one of those ‘fun but with a serious message’ type activities and all of these sites carry the fairly standard ‘disclaimer’.
