When it comes to the appearance of wrinkles on our face, nothing can speed up the signs of aging quite like stress. Whether due to a financial situation, career move or irritating family members, stress and anxiety can take a major toll on our skin. While wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, you can always find ways to beat the stress and allow your body and mind to truly relax. The best part is, rather thanmaking any major changes to your life, you simply need to alter how you respond to certain situations.
Here are a few tips for reducing stress:
- Eat right: Eating healthy foods is a great way to reduce stress and physically relax you. Foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as any fruit or vegetable, will have a calming impact on your mood. As a bonus, the healthy food will oxygenate your skin cells and keep the rest of you looking great!
- Exercise: If you find yourself becoming overwhelmed with a problem, all you need to do is go to the gym. The endorphins released during your exercise will help get rid of any bad thoughts that are clouding you and make you feel great both in mind and body.
- Talk to a friend: While this might seem simple, it is certainly one of the most effective ways to ease stress. Turning to a friend or family member to talk out whatever is bothering you is a tried and true way to help reduce the feelings of stress or anxiety you might be experiencing.
