    You do not Socialise

    Not socialising could be a sign that you are very bored with the human race, and this means that you are usually very aloof from the current times. This definitely makes you look older than your age and can be a very strong sign regarding the mental ageing of a young one. Act like you are young if you are so, and socialise with people, it can be interesting in many levels.

    You Overemphasise on Being Young

    Hanging out at the mall doesn’t mean that you always have to wear crazy graphic tees, and weirdly faded jeans when you are 30. You need to dress your age and so you need to wear clothes that suit your time and your lifestyle. Do not be so habitual with young and sexy clothing even when you have crossed that age. It will only make you look like a 40 year old who is desperately trying to make a comeback.

Eating too much junk can pose as trouble, your body does not like it, your brain rejects it, and your skin loathes it. Then why eat? Eating healthy foods is the best gift that you can give your body, and moreover this way you can avoid any excess weight issues. Being obese is not a great thing to happen, and you know it only too well.

    You do not Exercise

    Here is one habit that will take you a long way. One of the key ways to move past any sign of premature ageing is by exercising. When you exercise you keep fit, and you stay away from excess fat, and you develop muscles. Muscles are the right kind of mass that you are looking for, not fat. Also, your entire body feels rejuvenated and you tend to give out a radiant glow.
