RE: Handling aging
Part of aging is lifestyle of course, but part is genetic and part is sheer force of will.

Some guys I knew in high school and college already seem like stogy old men in their 30s and they don't even drink or smoke. Having wives/gfs they don't really like is partly to blame. They've lost the will to be young because there's no avenue where a youthful mindset and appearance would benefit them (that they can see). They let themselves go emotionally. It takes a certain amount of will power to keep up with pop culture and put in time at the gym and spend time around younger people and to emotionally distance yourself from a "live to work" american culture+consumerism. Youth is basically the ability to be inspired and the ability to make sacrifices to chase that inspiration. When that goes, youth goes.

And genetics. Watch Trump videos from the late 80s. He was in his early 40s then and it was the beginning of his media domination when he became a household name. He looks extremely youthful even though he admittedly eats garbage and doesn't exercise because of his belief in "lifetime energy quotas" or some shit. He mostly looked the same up until around 60 when he started gaining weight. I think this is mostly genetic - people don't age the same at all and two 40 year olds can be in very very different places lifestyle wise and how their genetics program them to age.
