Most people lead pretty busy lives these days, and really can't take the time to relax. As a result, we look and feel tired and could possibly be accelerating the aging process. There's no reason why you have to stay stuck in this cycle, though. Making the following lifestyle changes could improve your physical and emotional well-being:
- Eat more fruits and veggies – The next time you have a craving for chips and cookies, eat some carrot sticks or apple slices instead. Fruits and veggies are rich in antioxidants — the compounds that stop certain molecules from damaging healthy skin cells. Be sure you're getting five to nine servings each day.
- Exercise – There are numerous studies that suggest that exercising regularly will give you more energy and increase muscle strength. Working out also helps build bone density, which becomes even more important as you age.
- Sleep more – No matter how busy you are, not getting enough sleep will put you in a bad cycle that's difficult to get out of. When you're tired, you are significantly less productive. Besides, do you really want puffy bags under your eyes?
- Yoga and meditation – Spending time relaxing and mediating can bring down your stress levels. Stress is often the cause of wrinkles, so you should do everything possible to keep those pesky lines from bothering you.
If you do find that you have a few fine lines or wrinkles, there's no need to panic. There are plenty of procedures that can get you back to your youthful look. To learn more about fat injections or chemical peels, contactMarotta Aesthetics & Laser today!
