1. Multi-tasking

Think you can accomplish a lot by multi-tasking? Work never ends; what it does is stress your body instead.

There’re these things called free radicals, released by the body’s metabolic processes. These bad boys are harmful.

Without antioxidants to neutralize them, they damage tissues in the brain and the rest of the body leading to fatigue, memory loss, dark spots under the eyes, etc. Proceed moderately instead, by doing one task at a time and moving to the next only when you are done.

2. Not Wearing Sunscreen

Sunscreen, sunglasses, and large-brimmed hats are essential in hot weather to limit or prevent sun exposure totally. UV rays are not your friend.

These burn the skin, reducing its elasticity leading to premature aging. Apply SPF moisturizer daily to protect yourself from the sun.
