Biological Age Test

biological_age_test_dr_bardadyn"How do we define a person’s actual age? We certainly shouldn’t rely exclusively on birth certificates, as they don’t always tell the whole truth."

part of the book „The Codes of Youth” by D. Marek Bardadyn


If you want to find out what your chances of staying young are, answer a few simple questions, which will test how you cope with the basic activities decisive for your biological age.

I don't have a very stressful job or family problems, but little things can upset me

I don't worry about things that I can't control, I can handle stressful situations

I go to the doctor:

When I have to

Rarely, mostly to the dentist when my tooth hurts or to get a doctor's certificate when I have flu

Climbing stairs to the fourth floor:

Is not for me, I get out of breath, I feel faint, I have to stop on the way

I can do it in one go, but I get out of breath

It's no problem

My hands reach my ankles

My fingers touch the floor with difficulty
