Prayer is very important to many people and for a good reason. Prayer helps to center you resulting in a closer relationship with God, clarity, calmness and hope for the future.
You need to get some good sleep. Adequate sleep keeps your memory sharp, benefits our mood as well as keeps our immune system up. On top of that, it can keep wrinkles away and prevent your skin from becoming dry. So get your beauty sleep!
We can’t survive without water. Two-thirds of our body is made up of water and our blood is 90% water. In order to function properly, you need to stay hydrated. Staying hydrated improves your skin’s health making it appear smooth, radiant with an even tone.
Treat your skin kindly and optimize your nutrition by eating antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables, healthy fats from oily fish and nuts, for a balanced diet. This will provide your body with nutrients that are crucial for radiant skin, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium.
Moisturizing is your best friend! There’s nothing but great benefits in keeping your skin moisturized every day. It prevents dryness, slows the signs of aging, fights acne, protects you from the sun and soothes sensitive skin. Who would have thought taking 3-5 minutes of your day to moisturize could reap so many benefits?
Gratitude is a positive emotion that involves being thankful and appreciative and is associated with several mental and physical health benefits. When you experience gratitude, you feel grateful for something or someone in your life and respond with feelings of kindness, warmth, and other forms of generosity. Spend a few moments thinking about the things in your life that you are grateful for such as your home and health. You can also stop to observe and acknowledge the beauty of something you encounter in your daily life. The list goes on and on.
