The following Personal Wellness Plan will bring more than beautiful skin but a balance to life, work and family.
Stress is such a damaging part to our bodies and will not bring life balance. Many times that we become ill it is immediately after or during a stressful event. Stress can also cause our skin to breakout creating acne. Balance in the body cannot be found if the body is carrying large amounts of stress.
There are many ways to relieve stress. One is through daily exercise. It could be yoga, Pilates, a quick jog through a park, or even a kickboxing class. Often times we just need to find a way to get built up aggression out. Another way is through massage. A great masseuse will be able to use their hands to manipulate the body to release stress that has been built up. Massage helps slow the body down and put it in a relaxing state. Our body heals when it is relaxed.
Both exercise and massage will benefit the skin by increasing blood flow and restoring the body to a healthy zone.
How can spending time with some close friends bring about beautiful skin? Many times as women we do not take the time out to get together with good friends for a night out alone. With many responsibilities with work, family, and community activities, a night out seems impossible to fit in. But by getting away, many times we choose healthy activities. Either a day at the spa or window shopping through downtown all have benefits to our bodies. But more than anything, being able to share a fun time with a friend and relieve any tension that is carried inside will bring the best stress relief.
Sleep is essential to health. Getting seven to eight hours of sleep is the minimum amount anyone should have. Losing sleep is one of the most harmful things we do to our bodies. Lost sleep also impacts our appearance and it is not just because of dark circles and bags under the eyes. During sleep, all of our muscles relax – including facial muscles. This will help smooth out skin and release tension that was put on the face during the day.
The personal wellness plan will bring balance to life and family. Many of the changes that are needed are common sense but ones we still ignore. Maybe once we see the affects staring back at us in the mirror we will learn to take care of ourselves like our bodies need us too.
