Quit wor­ry­ing about money

and it will help to pre­vent thin­ning hair. Peo­ple with the high­est lev­els of fi­nan­cial stress look like they have aged more over a decade than peo­ple with lower lev­els of fi­nan­cial stress, shows a study.

The rea­son? It could be that peo­ple with money wor­ries don’t pay as much at­ten­tion to their ap­pear­ance. But stress also ac­cel­er­ates the age­ing process and con­trib­utes to hair loss in women – and fi­nan­cial stress takes a big­ger toll on ap­pear­ance than other types of stress, say re­searchers.

Make it work by: Writ­ing down what’s wor­ry­ing you about money and see­ing a fi­nan­cial ad­vi­sor to draw up a bud­get.

Not only does that phys­i­cally clear space in your brain so that you can fo­cus on other tasks, it also means you’re not try­ing to shelve or ig­nore what’s wor­ry­ing you. That’s a good strat­egy be­cause gloss­ing over wor­ries only in­creases anx­i­ety lev­els in the long run. #
