Your Life May Already Be Over

Your Life May Already Be Over
Research has found that your life is already over.

Many people say they feel they've made their best memories by the time they hit 30 or 40... but a new survey finds the age is actually closer to 25.

The survey took what the researchers called a "naturalistic approach" and asked retired people to tell free-flowing stories narrating their own biographies in just 30 minutes.

They say their findings indicate a lifetime's "best moments" are etched on the brains of most people by the mid 20s.

The so-called "reminiscence bump" mostly happens between 17 and 24, when most people describe parts of their lives as beginning and ending.
