How old am I today?

If you want to know exactly how old you are today, 2 April 2020, this is possible using mathematical calculation or using my calculator. With my age calculator, you can find out how many years, months, weeks, days and hours have passed since you were born.

How old was I on this date?

Should you want to know how old you were on a certain date in past history, or how old you will be at a future date, we've got you covered. Simply make use of our 'Age at Date' option to enter a date in either the past or future. Our calculator will then make a calculation based upon that date.

Calculating age

People regularly ask how they can work out how many days they've been alive and I point them to this calculator (it's one of the reasons I created it). Although you can have a rough stab in the dark by multiplying your age in years by 365, you could still be out by up to several hundred days. This will be in most part because you'll be working on the basis of your age at your last birthday, and therefore excluding the days since.

There's also leap years to take into consideration. These occur once every four years and mean an extra day in the calendar (366 days in the year). Your best way to get an accurate calculation to how old you are in days is, therefore, to use the age calculator tool provided.

How to age well

A government researcher once quipped that "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." Luis Bunuel, the Spanish filmmaker, joked that age does matter... if you're a cheese. These quotes are, of course, meant to be whimsical. There's little doubt that while you can't control your age, or predict what might happen to you, you can take actions to keep yourself healthy and give yourself the best chance of reaching a ripe old age. From food, to exercise and looking after your mental health. Here's a great article about how to age well from the New York Times.
