Of the 2,000 people surveyed, 75 percent say they believe age is just a number and 64 percent say they are more adventurous and daring now than they were before they turned 50.

In fact, 48 percent even said they have more fun now than they did when they were in their twenties.

The survey also showed that 7 in 10 people gained a new zest for life after reaching the half century mark.

What are some of the things people enjoy during their second wind?

Traveling abroad takes the top spot on that list, with 75 percent saying travel has influenced the person they are today and 1 in 3 saying an inspiring travel experience was the leading cause of a fresh and positive take on life.

Travel is followed by visiting famous U.S. landmarks and spending more time outdoors partaking in activities such as cycling and hiking.

Another big activity is volunteering and doing something good.

So, if you feel like life has sped by and you haven't done enough, there's still plenty of time!
