Studies show that stress can sabotage even the best efforts to be happy and healthy. We have compiled a cheat sheet of simple, proven steps to alleviate anxiety and put us all on the path toward greater well-being.

ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE

Research reveals that optimistic people are happier overall than pessimists. To curb “glass-half-empty” thinking, experts recommend making a daily list of at least five things/people/situations for which we are grateful. The more we remind ourselves of the good things in life, the easier it is to weather tumultuous times.

FOCUS ON THE PRESENT

“Stress is rarely in the here and now,” says Marc Zollicoffer, director of Aveda Spa Education. “It’s usually caused by living in the past or worrying about the future.” Directing our energies to the activities and goals at hand rather than dwelling on things that have already happened or those that may or may not, can go far in altering our attitudes.

SMILE AND LAUGH

Our brains are interconnected with our emotions and facial expressions. When we are stressed, we often hold a lot of tension in our faces. Seeing a funny movie, joking around with a friend or just learning to find the humor in any given situation helps take some of the sting out of our strain by relaxing facial muscles.

ADJUST EXPECTATIONS

We can take loads of pressure off of ourselves by aiming for progress rather than perfection, which isn’t humanly possible. But doing the very best we can—and letting ourselves be proud of achieving that is.

There’s no frizz, no curl, but…and here’s the good news…there’s still just enough texture and body to work with. It was easy to experiment with my flat iron. I twisted the ends and in less than 5 minutes, I am not exaggerating, my hair is in soft waves just where I want, and lasts until the next washing. I’m hooked!”

3 Signs You’re in a Hairstyle Rut

Knowing when it’s time to make a change to your hair isn’t always easy. You may be stuck in a hairstyle rut and not even realize it—asking yourself these three questions can help.

 1. Has it been more than five years since you rethought your style? Even the most classic look needs occasional tweaks.

2. Typically when you look in the mirror, do you love your hair? It seems like a simple question, but when life gets busy, it’s easy to think, “Well, it’s okay/fine/best I can do.” Talk with a stylist about options you might like more.

3. Do you see your haircut—or anything remotely similar—in any current magazine? If your answer is no, except in a “before” photo, your style probably needs to be refreshed.

Make a consultation appointment with a stylist. Talk about what you love and what you hate about your current style. Get feedback from the stylist on your hair’s texture and their thoughts on what kind of haircut and color would look good on you. The sit back, relax and let the transformation begin.

Ten Thoughts on Whole Living

Enjoying the sun

1. Some of the most amazing moments in your life will take you by surprise. Let them.

2. Live sustainably. Fix rather than replace things in your home.

3. Don’t discount the value of simple pleasures.

4. Try not to let the lure of electronics strip away your ability to be here now.

5. Eating does more than quiet hunger. It allows us to thrive.

6. Consider traveling solo for a day, or longer. Give yourself the gift of time alone.

7. Ease your sugar intake. Look for alternative ways to bring sweetness into your life.

8. See criticism as a lesson in disguise.

9. Everyone has an inner child. Be kinder to yours, and compassionate towards others’.

10. Don’t be too quick to close doors on your future. Instead, find more to open.

Can my diet help prevent premature aging of the skin?

You can make a lot of improvements in your overall state of health and well-being by making healthy lifestyle choices. Here are some simple guidelines to follow:

  • Consume a wide variety of whole grains, fresh or frozen vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, greens and beans.
  • Eat foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, low in processed ingredients and hydrogenated vegetable oils.
  • Drink plenty of water—half your body weight in ounces per day.
  • Do not eat foods containing hydrogenated oils. Limit all fried foods, saturated fats, refined oils and processed foods.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables that are high in anti-oxidants. These foods are highly colorful. Think of red, ripe tomatoes, broccoli, carrots and eggplant.
  • Eat organic food whenever possible. This will ensure higher quality foods, and less contamination with additives, dyes, chemicals, pesticides and antibiotics.
  • Learn relaxation techniques or calming skills to help minimize the effects of stress
  • Limit exposure in the sun
