Early Signs of Old Age

FORGETTING people’s names, groaning when you bend down and falling asleep in front of the TV are among the signs you’re getting old, according to a new study.

A poll of 2,000 adults also found needing an afternoon nap, finding it tricky to sit cross-legged and choosing comfort over style are indicators you’re getting on a bit.

Falling asleep after drinking or while watching TV.

Complaining more often, declaring you’re “gasping” for a cup of tea and feeling flattered when you get asked for ID when visiting a bar also made the list.

Other warnings you’re over the hill include preferring a night in with a board game, knowing your alcohol limit and struggling with technology.
