    Yes, a persons age is representative of how they have looked after themselves.  People who sleep, eat and exercise right will generally look younger than those who don't.

    Yes, i agree very much. I think it has to do with your lifestyle and of course sometimes your family genes. I dont look my age. But I am older than what I look. People always look shocked because I guess they feel like I should look like everyone else.... lol But I take very good care of myself and my mental health as well... Alot of people are not healthy not only physically but emotionally and that can age you before your time as well...

    Yes! That may be due to some bad habits including smoking, drinking liquor and improper food habits. If anyone follow good habits throughout life, he or she could maintain youthful looking.

    Yes, I do agree that people age earlier than their chronological age. I think a lot of it has to do with heritage, environment, how well they took care of themselves, exercise, genetics's and so on. I have a friend who is 35 but looks like she is 60 something. She abused her body with drugs, alcohol, not taking care of her health or herself.  And her genetics of family, they all seem to age earlier than their years. I am luck to be at a slow age. I am in my middle fifties and people say I look in my thirties. I just age gracefully. My family ages slowly. My mother is 74 but looks to be in her fifties.

    People can look older than their actual age. Factors that influence this greatly are diet, lifestyle and environment. Poor nutrition, high stress lifestyle, smoking, etc can affect the body physically and often "age" a person before their time.

    Ultimately, it is all in the mind. If you are bored and if you have nothing to occupy you, you age faster. One has to keep the brain engaged if one is to feel young.

    yeah! I agree, I know people who are looking old already at surprisingly very young age, some of them appears weak and weary, and some started loosing hair and one major contributor to this is smoking.

    Most definitely. Chronic stress and bad habits, such as alcoholism or drug use, will age a person quickly. So will overworking and obesity.

    Definitely. Likewise, some people look very young and surprise me with their age.

    I absolutely agree.  Physical-aging, I believe has to do with stress, a bad diet, lack of sleep and other harmful habits like smoking, drinking, sun-tanning etc.  Mental-aging I believe occurs when people have daily unhappiness and emotional stress.
