Reflect and Relax
By Amy Wechsler, MD
Reflect on Your Journey This is the final day of the Younger Looking Skin plan! Think about how the last 9 days have been for you. What's gone well? Do you feel physically and emotionally different than you did last weekend? What helped you most? Was it getting more sleep, connecting with friends, having more sex, or learning to meditate?
Take Two Just for You Pick the stress buster that you've liked doing best -- meditating, breathing, making love, having a worry session, whatever -- and do it twice today.
And don't forget to get your beauty sleep, be positive, foster friendships, move your body, eat clean, go green, relax, and simplify.
You've completed the 9-Day Mind-Beauty Makeover and tapped the power of The Mind-Beauty Connection to start reversing the effects of tension and time. You should be looking and feeling not only younger but also happier, healthier, and more whole; less stressed, more you.
By continuing even some of the new habits you've picked up in the last 9 days, you'll keep looking and feeling terrific, not just for now, but for life. Use these tips to nurture the beauty in you:
Stick to your newly formed habits as best you can over the next several weeks as your body continues to adjust and respond.
Feel free to add and subtract things that worked especially well for you, or didn't. The point is to discover what helps you, and that's going to be as individual as you and your life are. Use Dr. Amy's 7 Habits for Healthy Skin to stay on track.
Focus on making your daily activity something you look forward to. Get inspired with these videos.
Keep a handle on stress, don't skimp on sleep or healthy eats, and don't get lured in by the latest beauty products.
Tell someone else how the mind-beauty connection can reverse stress aging and bring out the best in her looks.
