A new study now suggests that having sex at least once a week can help a person feel as much as 15 years younger.

According to 50-year-olds and those older, having sex at least four times, exercising 16 times and taking a holiday or mini-break in the span of one year helped them feel younger.

The survey, conducted by orthopaedic support firm Neo G, also found that petting animals, going on holiday, seeing pals and spending time being alone with their partner also made people feel much younger.

The study found those who were most active felt more than 12 years younger than those who were less active.

Speaking to MailOnline, Paul Starkey, of Neo G said people have been wanting to look and feel young for centuries.

“People who look and feel younger than their years have always been a mystery, so hopefully our research has managed to expose some of the activities we can all try to incorporate into our life,” she added.

According to Starkey the research highlighted need to keep looking after oneself and enjoying the best things in life, no matter what a person’s age is.
