Reaching middle age doesn’t have to be a crisis; people are living longer and staying healthier and more mobile into old age, and expert accounting services in Manchester can help you to plan for your future too.
According to Towergate Insurance, the notion of a ‘midlife crisis’ is changing as the population ages more gracefully.
In some cases, people are still opting for the classic ways to revive their youth – such as splashing out on a sports car, for instance.
But many more are choosing to learn new skills later in life, for example by picking up a new musical instrument for the first time or learning photography skills – both of which 7% of people surveyed said they would consider.
In Manchester in particular, the average midlife crisis costs just under £10,000 and around 30% of people go through one – but again, it’s not always a negative thing.
Towergate found the average Mancunian takes up a new hobby or splashes out on a luxury purchase aged 43, and 83% are quite happy about their age.
With our expert accounting services in Manchester, you can make sure your bank manager is happy with your outlay too, by budgeting carefully for any big-ticket purchases to make your middle age more exciting.
