  1. I always tell I am becoming older.My husband says he is getting younger.I think finally we would become a young husband - an old wife pair if I don't change my thinking. Let me see if your tips would help.:)

  2. Very nice, useful and informative tips. It will definitely help me as sometimes I also think of becoming older. Effective and knowledgeable post.

  3. Don't stay at home on weekends. Go out and eat a pizza or a burger and not the usual 'indian food'.

  4. I don't think I have to worry about anything, for I always look young and beautiful. It is all in the mind. To look young you don't have to do anything, just think healthy and be healthy.

  5. Good listing SG! Except for #4 & 13 These should be off limits at any age... is my honest opinion...

  6. I will try to follow it. But I don't wear shorts, don't watch porn and never use F words. Other than that I am 'very' young.
