Is Age Just a Number?
It's a well known fact that we perceive the people we love as being younger than they actually are.
It can be a couple in their sixties or seventies who still see each other as the 20 somethings they married 40 years ago.
It can be a father who still sees his daughter as the twelve year old who needed his support, advice and protection when the rest of the world sees her as the successful attorney that she's become.
Interestingly, this only happens if the object of affection has maintained their health and appearance.

The takeaway is embracing a diet and exercise related lifestyle will keep those rose colored glasses firmly on your loved one's face!
