How to Achieve a Youthful Glow

Is stress and worry taking its toll on you?

Are you looking jaded and feeling old before your time?

Age is a state of mind and, with a bit of attention, you can achieve a youthful glow naturally. Here's how...

# Ditch those frown lines by releasing the stuff that causes them. Acknowledge worry, fear, pressure, and hardship, but don't let your response to life's challenges drain you. Change what you can change and release what you can't. Choose a joyful, positive approach.

# Take good care of yourself. Are you eating and drinking healthily? Are you gaining adequate exercise and sleep? Do you have a good life-work balance? When life is busy, it's easy to forget to nurture yourself. Make time for you.

# Are you carrying the weight of unresolved emotion? When you dwell on past events or 'what-ifs?', you allow your thoughts to steal the joy of the present moment. Unresolved emotion can age you in more ways than one. It can affect your physical and mental health. It can also make you look tired, old, and sad. Take action on your emotional well-being. Once you release those negative emotions, you will radiate a youthful presence.

# Treat yourself to a total well-being make-over. Most people thrive from some well-deserved pampering and attention. A good hair cut, a facial, an aromatherapy treatment, a new outfit... such treats on a regular basis will help maintain your youthful glow.

# Smile and laugh more - even if you don't feel you want to right now. Look for something that will naturally trigger a smile or laughter. It will raise those 'feel-good' hormones. When you feel good, you look good, too!

How you 'perceive' and 'respond' to life really matters. When you're at ease with yourself and the world, you will glow and look young.

Wondering whether there are any secrets to looking fantastically young? Take a look at The Five Rituals and see if it works for you.

Have a wonderful, joyful day!
