How Stress Is Making You Older
Stressed about stress? I can help!
Did you know that research has found that a frown can add as much as two or more years to your perceived age? 2 YEARS.
To me, that’s simply unacceptable.
Chances are, this frown is a result of stress. And honestly, frowning is just one for the ways that stress makes you look like an older, haggard version of yourself. The scariest part? You might not even realize it’s happening until you get that dreaded comment from a friend or coworker: “you look… tired.” We all know what that really means, people.
So, what to do? If you know me at all, you know I’m all about action. And, when the first step to solving a problem is admitting you have one, it helps to identify what’s NOT working so you can get a better view of your goals.
Let’s start. HOW exactly is stress making you older?
It makes you dehydrated
A.K.A. a major source of wrinkles! Don’t you want dewy, hydrated skin? Reducing stress makes it easier for your skin to soak up all that lotion you apply every night… and all that LaCroix you drink every day.
It makes you sick
High blood pressure? Diabetes? Alzheimer’s?! I can safely say none of us want any of these. That should be motivation enough to get rid of stress, since it’s associated with this and many other illnesses.
It makes you desperate
Desperate for a way to cope with the weight on our shoulders, many of us are too quick to turn to vices that distract from our anxiety. Newsflash: the relief you might feel from a nightly cocktail (or three) may turn destructive in the long run.
Now, time for action.
