Tips to keep your skin naturally glowing, young and acne-free
Stress and how we look go hand in hand. Most of us are all very aware of how connected the mind is to the body and vice versa. The body is the head of our mind.
Well, this is an example - if you say something foolish or silly in front of someone and your thinking is that you feel embarrassed because of this, your face is blushing or flushing. This is a simple cognition of 'I did/say something silly'; - that can cause basically every blood vessels in the skin to instantaneously open up, causing a blush or flush. This is the evidence that emotion has the impact on body's largest organ - skin. It is pretty amazing fact that the mind and body are linked.
The Effects of Redundancy
There are lots of vague expressions for firing people - downsizing, outsourcing, organisation change, company review, restructuring and redundancy. Irrespective of which labels organisation use, people's emotional reactions tend to be the same. Apart from financial implication, job loss can mean a significant loss of identity and an individual's self-esteem may be effected too. Additionally, an individual may feel isolated from the society or social network. Of course, there are always individuals for whom a redundancy may be welcome. For instance, if an individual receives a decent redundancy package or was unhappy in their workplace. For such individuals a redundancy offer an opportunity with financial security to do other things. However, most people do not fall into this category.
Yes, losing a job may be an increasingly common career 'event', something some of us will experience at some stage. But the familiarity doesn't lessen the psychological pain that often accompanies the redundancy. Finding a job in a recession is tough enough, but struggling with the self-critic voices, doubts and fears in your head can be an even tougher effort. The sudden loss of routine, such getting ready for work, or contact with professionals or colleagues and simply not having a workplace to go to can leave people feeling isolated, depressed and lost.
