Ah but the flip side according to Einstein, is that moving at speed actually slows down the passage of time. So you are actually number of seconds younger than you thought you were.

I don't think gravitational time dilation is quite that high, over the course of a lifetime you might be a second younger than someone in distant space (ie. away from a massive object). Now relative velocity time dilation is a different story, but you would have to have something to compare to.
