Be kind to your mind
Anyone who has dealt with acne knows the power it can have on your self-esteem. A sudden breakout can be a confidence killer and cause unwanted and unneeded stress in your daily life.
Gratitude jars are a great reminder of the positive things in our life and give you a way to help re-frame your mental state and combat stress.
Once a day, write what you’re thankful for on a small piece of paper and put it in a jar. You can fill the gratitude jar with any sort of positive notes—anything from lifelong friendships to fuzzy socks—and read the notes when you need an instant mood boost and stress reliever.
Studies show that practicing gratitude can lower blood pressure, stress, improve immune function, and facilitate more efficient sleep—all of which are essential for healthy skin.
You can even extend it beyond a jar and keep a gratitude journal, taking time daily to write down what you’re grateful for. Whatever your gratitude practice includes, one thing is certain—your mind and complexion will thank you.
