Most Feel Unprepared for Challenges of Long Life
Hungarians respond to the difficulties of everyday life with flexibility, lifelong learning, and by increasing the number of years spent actively, according to NN Longevity research covering 11 countries, including Hungary, writes profitline.hu.
Although these survival instincts work, the challenges leave a heavy toll on our mental health in the form of stress, burnout, and anxiety.
According to the survey, 44% of Hungarians want to live a long life, with this result, we are at the front of the queue together with the Spanish, Romanians and Greeks, but only 38% of the respondents feel prepared for the associated challenges.
In this regard, we are in third place, ahead of Japan and Turkey.
People measure readiness for a long life primarily in terms of factors such as well-being, health, and financial security.
On a 10-point scale, Hungarians are satisfied with their own lives on average up to 5.5 points, while the average of the 11 countries is six.
