Have you walked through a beauty store such as ULTA lately and noticed how many products are promoted to be anti-aging? It is amazing how even the 20 & 30- somethings should be aware of anti-aging products now…according to the beauty industry. But, if we purchased everything we are told to buy to look and feel young….we would spend the majority of our income on products.

However, there are a few free secrets I try my best to follow in order to keep feeling younger as I march closer to the big 6 – 0. The first one is to make a concentrated effort every day NOT to worry…especially about senseless things. I tend to worry the most about my children’s safety and about our finances. Sometimes, I need to say out loud to myself STOP! I have discovered that worrying does nothing for me but bring on wrinkles (especially around my mouth and forehead); give me an excuse to overeat; and sometimes results in teeth grinding at night.

In a book I own, author Margaret Bottome writes, “But what does it mean to fret? One person once defined it as that which makes a person rough on the surface, causing him to rub and wear himself and others away. Isn’t it true that an irritable, irrational, and critical person not only wears himself out but is also very draining and tiring to others? When we worry and fret, we are a constant annoyance.”

I know I have been an annoyance to my family when I over worry about their safety and well- being. Women can often be the absolute worse at worrying.

I really have discovered that the more I do not worry and allow my thoughts to run rampant….the better I physically feel and look.

Does anyone else have a story to share about worrying too much?
