Worrying is feeling uneasy or being overly concerned about a situation or problem. With excessive worrying, your mind and body go into overdrive as you constantly focus on “what might happen.” When you get stressed out, your body produces higher levels of a stress hormone which leads to an increase in your body’s production of oil. Too much oil can cause acne, even in people who don’t usually break out. So, don’t worry to avoid inviting more reasons to worry, eh?

        11. Don’t Judge

Judging people means that you pass a value judgment on what others think or do or say, of which judgment implies making a decision whether something is right or wrong. This in turns only complicates everything; you try to compare everything as per your beliefs thus, forgetting that everyone is entitled to their own choice. To have a stress free and happy life, one must avoid judging other people.

          12. Slow Down

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” Said Gandhi. Its all beauty to notice the small things, to count your blessings and keep perspective, to not compare and find joy and to live in the moment.

           13. Pay Attention
