With the holidays now quickly approaching, it is not only a time of great excitement, but also a time of stress. For many, a great deal of energy is expended on organizing events, planning and cooking meals, finding the “ideal” present, and dealing with annoying family members.
At all times, and especially now during the holidays, it is important to remember that excessive stress is one of the most common and avoidable causes of temporary hair loss and thinning. While this thought can be intimidating at first, it can also be empowering because unlike our genes, it is something we actually have control over.
Whether you are struggling to get the kids dressed, lovingly arguing with your significant other over the placement of decorations, or rushing to cook a roasted turkey on time, try your best to keep your cool.
Gaining control over your stress is key not only for hair loss and overall health, but also for quality of life. So with this holiday season in full swing, keep your mind, body and hair lush and thriving by remembering to not sweat the small stuff.
