Minimizing the stress in your life as well as learning how to manage difficult situations when they arise can go a long way to make you healthier and happier.

How To Manage Your Stress

Exercise on a regular basis

Learn stress reducing techniques such as relaxation breathing, meditation, yoga, and tai chi

Take regular breaks at work and get some fresh air

Maintain a diet rich in local, in season foods (organic if possible) including plenty of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, wild caught fish and protein sources such as legumes, nuts and seeds.

Get a massage

Take a vacation or spend time with loved ones

Make time for a hobby that you enjoy

Reducing the Stress On Your Skin

Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of filtered tap or spring water.

Avoid the use of harsh soaps which cause further drying of the skin

Eat lots of red and orange fruits (apples, oranges, plums, grapes, cherries, & peaches)

Reduce contact with skin irritants such as detergents, soaps, woolen materials, or cleaning fluids

Ensure a diet rich in Vitamins A, C, E, K and B complex by eating well and using nutritional supplements
