EXCERPT FROM STOP STRESS FAST (Introduction)

In my thirties I looked ten years older than my age and was close to a breakdown from stress, overwork and unresolved emotional issues. Most of the time I didn’t know what was wrong with my life. I didn’t know why it wasn’t running smoothly and had no idea how to fix all the things that were going on and going wrong.

One minute I was happy, the next minute I was sad and my ability to make decisions was clouded with doubt. The stress that I felt on a daily basis was impacting on the quality of my relationship, my business, my health and state of mind.

Instead of dealing with the cause of my stress, I built my life around managing the stress and unhappiness I felt, and doing what was required to keep everything moving.

I felt disillusioned and ashamed for letting these emotions get the better of me and angry for not being able to manage my own expectations. To cope with the stress of a difficult day I would ‘self-medicate’ with lifestyle elements; a few more coffees to get through the day; too many sweet or greasy snacks to cheer me up; and one too many glasses of wine to relax – none of which would have been a problem if I had only indulged occasionally; but stress had a way of turning my indulgent treats into an everyday occurrence.

I felt overwhelmed and exhausted. The days were long and the nights were even longer, and when I did fall asleep I would wake up short of breath with my heart pounding.

I got to the point where I dreaded going to bed and would spend my days feeling weary with my mind in a fog. I looked broken and started to gain weight; so misery was now sitting on my face and my bones. Fatigue and heart palpitations became my new ‘normal’, but I ignored the symptoms and told myself it would all be worth it.

My feelings of personal success and self-worth were based on my business success and so I pushed myself harder and internalised my worrying.

I wanted to be the best I could be, but I had been fighting years of stress and toxic lifestyle behaviours. I experienced low motivation and low moods, but I kept pretending that nothing was wrong and whenever it felt like I was at breaking point I told myself to ‘get over it’.

That worked for a while, until one night at two in the morning the stress that I thought I was keeping under control, took control over me. My heart was beating wildly and my breathing became shorter and shorter. With long pauses between breaths I began to panic and wondered if each breath would be my last.

No matter what I did, I couldn’t modulate my breathing and was just desperately gasping for air. My wife rushed me to the hospital where I found myself in emergency hooked up to an oxygen tank for hours, while they performed all sorts of tests.

The doctor told me it was an anxiety attack, but regardless of what they called it, I knew that the stress I had refused to deal with had finally caught up with me.

Never before had I given much thought to the act of breathing, after all we do it all day without having to think about it; but after this incident I found myself feeling extremely grateful for each new breath I took.

Even after this episode, my stress and anxiety levels were still high, as my business used every last bit of energy I had in me. Everything in my world seemed to be challenging me to find another way to live and so faced with collapse from exhaustion, I finally had to decide whether wealth or my health was to be my priority. It didn’t feel like an easy decision as I had worked so hard to get to where I was, but in reality I didn’t have a choice if I wanted to live a long and happy life; so I made the commitment to de-stress my life.

I was searching for a deeper understanding of who I was and the life I had created and this took me to India.

I stayed in India for three months, spending whole weeks at a time practising meditation and conscious breathing for thirteen hours a day. The program would start at 4.30am in the morning and finish at 10.00pm in the evening, with short breaks for water, fruit and watery porridge flavoured with garlic!

As we meditated we were told to breathe deeply and consciously, while sitting completely still in one position for the entire day – no talking, no eye contact and no hand gestures. There was certainly nothing ‘airy fairy’ about this course. It felt like a mental, physical and emotional boot camp.

So when I wasn’t fighting an itch that I wasn’t allowed to scratch, my body ached, my muscles cramped and my joints locked. By the end of the night, as I walked back to my sleeping quarters, my legs shook uncontrollably from the pain.

Everything changes when you have no distractions; you remember things and feel things that you have long forgotten about or put aside. In the silence all of the suppressed unhappiness, stress and emotional baggage that I had been running from in my life crashed into me.

There was so much unresolved pain in my life and sitting with my own thoughts I could feel how I had repressed my feelings, pushing them deep into my body so that all I generally felt on a daily basis was a sense of numbness. For the first time I understood why a feeling of inner peace eluded me and why I felt depressed, anxious and unhappy. It is a bizarre feeling sitting in silence waiting for nothing other than your next deep breath. I started to feel how stress had burdened my mind and body and made me look worn out, defeated and tired. Listening to the subtle changes in my breath helped me understand how my body responded to my thoughts and how this set off stress reactions in my body.

When I thought about something stressful, my breath would shorten and I would feel anxiety take over my whole body. But in this environment there was no option to suppress my thoughts and feelings and keep moving. I had nowhere to run, no business meetings to distract me and no lifestyle self-medicating opportunities; it was just me sitting alone in one position with my thoughts and feelings for hours every day.

As awful as this sounds, (and it was), it was the turning point that allowed me to listen to where the stress was coming from and start to heal the parts of me that were pained.

Acknowledging and listening to my feelings went a long way to releasing the built up stress in my body; but what astounded me was that at the end of this meditation program I could see that it had literally taken years off my face within days. I felt like I had discovered the fountain of youth! The stress had left my face and I looked like a younger, fresher version of myself; but beyond that I felt more calm and peaceful than I could ever remember.

The old saying that life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it, was ringing true. I believed I was no longer a victim to my thoughts and emotions and no longer needed to follow them down the well-worn path to the pit of depression.

The transformation I experienced felt like it had reignited my life force. While there was no single ‘silver bullet’ solution to lowering my stress levels, the realisation that I could take back control of my life from the stress I had lived with for so long was like a light going on in my head. The deep breathing and meditation were transformational. I now had some tools that I could use to help me feel better and cope with situations in a calmer way. My quality of life was changing internally and that was showing up in the way I felt and my overall health.

Prior to going to India I was suffering from built up internal stress as well as the additional physical stress caused by over-indulgence with the wrong foods; too much sugar and way too much alcohol. So I knew that when I returned to my real life and its every day stresses that if I wanted a different result, I needed to change the way I managed the internal stress and my use of lifestyle indulgences for short term relief.

I also had to find a way to stop stress fast and not let it build up, if I was going to find a way to live a better life.

My quality of life and my health depended on my making real and lasting changes, so my aim was to create a lifestyle that would allow me to maintain a high level of energy, feel peaceful in myself and look as healthy and vital as I could.

I needed a daily approach that ensured my stress levels remained low and I could enjoy my life, instead of just struggling to get through it.

While I had started to make many changes, one of the most important issues I needed to conquer was my diet, and address the way I either chose to nurture or ‘torture’ my body as a means of managing daily stress!

I had worked as a chef years before while I waited for my career in fashion to take off, so cooking good food was never an issue – it was what I chose to snack on, binge on and overindulge in that had become a problem. Real change is rarely without challenge and I would have loved someone to provide me with a formula or a roadmap on how to move forward, but I kept going until over time I discovered and adapted my own de-stress techniques to support my health and lower my stress levels. This formula consists of three elements:

1. DEEP BREATHING

2. STRESS-REDUCING VITAMIN FOODS

3. RELAXATION PRACTICE

For me this has become a life-long practice that I continue to use daily to raise my energy, look after my body and manage the stress that comes with day-to-day living. It is the source of energy that allows me to do the things I want to do, to maintain calm in the face of stressful situations and to live peacefully with myself and others.

For over twenty years I have shared my expertise with organisations and people across the global community; supporting them to de-stress and age less; and to look and feel their best.

It has inspired me to share and write books on how to maintain younger looking skin naturally and to create the television program, FACE LIFTING FOOD and the FACE LIFTING FOOD APP; which shows people how to keep skin healthy and younger looking with vitamin rich power foods, while lowering their stress levels naturally. The TV show is now shown in more than 25 countries worldwide and also used in Universities throughout the USA and Canada as the go-to educative resource on how to sustain healthy, vital looking skin without invasive practises or chemicals.

On reflection, what worked for me was a willingness to change a few small behaviours and repeat them regularly, until one day I literally woke up and realised that I wasn’t as stressed or as pained, and that into the bargain I looked healthier, younger and felt like I was operating day-to-day with more energy and mental clarity. I have come to believe that we can’t hide from stress, but regardless of the situation that is causing us to experience ongoing stress, there are ways that we can deal with it. I freed myself from years of suffering from chronic stress, so I know from lived experience that it is possible to learn to live more joyfully and fully.

The exciting part is that we all have access to some of the most effective tools to deal with and reduce stress naturally, and in the process age less.

Many of these techniques are designed to stop stress fast and can be practised where ever you are, so you reduce the immediate onset of stressful thoughts and feelings. Others require a daily approach to set you up for the long term benefits of living your best life free from chronic stress.

To de-stress and age less we have to work with the mind and the body and the best way to do this is to practise daily de-stress techniques.

Please keep in mind that this book is not a replacement for getting help in the form of counselling or seeing a psychologist or medical professional if you are experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety or depression. Nor is it a total life solution to managing stress. It is a compilation of techniques that helped me to reduce my own stress levels, feel calmer on a daily basis and look healthier.

So if at any time you feel as though you need support or just want to talk to someone, make sure you reach out and get the help you need. There are services in most countries that operate 24/7 with amazing, compassionate people at the end of the phone ready to listen. (Please note: if you are being treated for any symptoms of extreme stress please consult with your physician before undertaking the GL De-Stress & Age Less method.) I wish you only the best on your journey to live peacefully and with joy in the midst of life’s challenges!

With that in mind the best advice I can offer is to breathe deeply, eat well and live happily!

STOP STRESS FAST BY GREGORY LANDSMAN GUEST POST

Q1. IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN DO TO REDUCE THE VISIBLE IMPACTS OF STRESS ON OUR FACES?

There are many ways we can reduce the visible impacts of stress on the face. Two of the most effective are:

  1. Breathe deeply for at least five minutes a day. Deep breathing calms the body and relieves stress and tension, reduces high blood pressure and calms anxiety. 
  2. Give your face a firm massage daily with a nutrient rich moisturiser in the morning and before going to bed. This speeds up the lymphatic drainage system and oxygenates the blood, which carries more nutrients to the skin and relieves stress from the facial muscles. 

Incorporating these small practises into our daily routine reduces the impacts of stress on our faces and makes a visible difference. 

We associate wrinkles and sagging muscles with lost youth, yet rarely do we make the connection between stress and how it robs us from looking younger, feeling younger and staying younger.

Gregory Landsman

Q2.YOU ARE A FIRM BELIEVER IN THE POWER OF WATER TO HELP REDUCE STRESS?

I am a firm believer that when we know better we can do better. My clients report a marked reduction in their stress levels and the prevalence of wrinkles by increasing their water intake. When you are feeling stressed, take a few deep breaths and drink a glass of water. It immediately calms the nervous system. Water reduces stress. Many studies show that when the body is dehydrated it leads to higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which makes it more difficult to cope with daily issues and stress. 

Staying hydrated supports us to cope better, it also increases blood circulation and detoxifies the body by flushing out impurities. Drinking enough water and staying hydrated is important, because it increases water in the skin cells, which reduces wrinkles and creates a healthier and younger looking complexionIncreasing our water intake naturally increases the health of our skin and simultaneously helps decrease our stress levels.  

Q3. TO MANAGE STRESS DAY-TO-DAY YOU WRITE THAT YOU HAD TO MAKE CHANGES IN YOUR LIFE. WHAT DID YOU DO THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE?

The thing that ultimately changed my day-to-day reality was making decisions. I needed to make decisions that allowed me to live more calmly, so I could enjoy a greater sense of peace – not occasionally, but every day!

The first decision was that regardless of what I had to change, I wasn’t going to live with as much stress as I was currently experiencing. I have come to know that nothing changes in life until we make the decision to change. 

The second was making a commitment to deal with stress in a way that supported my health and well being, and a better quality of life.

The third was looking at where in my life I encountered stress and was losing all of my energy – as I could only fix what I was aware of.  

These three decisions literally changed the way I approached my life, and my daily decision making process. Ultimately we shape our lives with the decisions we make on a day to day basis, and also those we refuse to make.

When you are under stress we need to make conscious decisions to eat well, breath deeply, think well, love fully, pray daily and meditate; as this is how we de-stress the body, bring peace to the mind and improve our quality of life.

Gregory Landsman

 

Q4. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING THAT HELP YOU TO STAY CALM AND FEEL PEACEFUL?

 

I love to garden, cook delicious healthy food and walk my dogs. Each of these activities brings me closer to nature and reminds me of the goodness that we have all been blessed with in our lives. I have learnt that it is the simple things in life that enrich my world with happiness and love.

Book Excerpt – Face Food

Book Excerpt – FACE FOOD

FACE FOOD highlights that simple, tasty foods have the ability to flush your face with vitality, improve and change the quality and texture of your skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, increase firmness and combat premature aging.

While genetic factors play a major role in the way we age, so does the food that we eat. In fact our diet is one of the great anti-aging secrets to retaining or regaining beautiful skin. It’s all based on the basic principal that building and protecting collagen through the foods we eat is the foundation to healthy, youthful looking skin; as when we increase collagen, wrinkles begin to fade and skin regains its elasticity.

Dealing with faces every day as I have for many years, it is easy to see when skin has been deprived of nutrients. So whenever I recommend a skin solution I keep in mind that one of the most effective ways to protect and preserve our skin at any age involves eating the right skin renewing foods.

Many of the natural foods we eat hold age-defying vitamins and minerals that are essential to give the skin radiance, while supporting, hydrating and maintaining the health of the skin. They are also the key to building collagen.

You may ask why building collagen is so important. Simply because collagen is the protein in connective tissue that keeps the skin elastic. However, the fibres in these tissues can become weak and damaged through free radicals, which impact our skin both inside and out as a result of different lifestyle elements such as bad food, sun damage, smoking, pollution, excess alcohol, and the list goes on! However, collagen cannot be absorbed from a beauty cream as the molecules are too large to penetrate the skin’s cells. This means the most effective solution is either topically applying the right ingredients (see Face Value), or eating foods full of skin regenerating vitamins and minerals that naturally renew, stimulate and protect collagen.

The quick and easy recipes in this book are power packed with skin building ingredients to help your skin be the best it can be. For me cooking is not only a wonderful reminder that sharing food with those we love nurtures their health and skin from the inside out, but that the true essence of our beauty is in sharing the spirit of our humanity in all that we do.

My personal philosophy on B.E.A.U.T.Y. is…

Balance in our life unfolds from the inside out.

Enthusiasm lies within the way we think and feel about ourselves.

Acceptance is the path to making peace with ourselves and others.

Understanding ourselves gives us clarity and wisdom to know what we want, and importantly, what we don’t.

Trust attunes our heart and mind so we can nurture spontaneity and adventure in our lives, and see that…

You have what it takes to create the life and love you know you deserve and to never settle for anything less.

So while our skin is the largest organ in the body and we need to look after it, it is important to remain true to our beauty by never forgetting that laughter and humor play a major role in experiencing it and feeling it.

“After all, the beauty we feel is the beauty we live.” – Gregory Landsman

FACE FOOD by Gregory Landsman

Q1. WHAT IS THE BEST ANTIOXIDANT-RICH FOOD FOR OVERALL HEALTH AND PREVENTION OF PREMATURE AGING?

There is no one particular food that will do this. A balanced diet rich in skin boosting vitamins, minerals and anti oxidants is the best way improve the overall health our skin. 

People suffering from a variety of skin concerns are often amazed at the improvements that come as a result of simply changing their diet. It is a simple but powerful reminder that some of our greatest anti aging solutions can be found in natural foods. 

Q2. WHAT IS ONE OF THE WORST THINGS WE CAN EAT FOR OUR SKIN?

One of the worst things for skin health is refined sugar. Sugar in any form (desserts, drinks or alcohol) mimics the stress hormone in the body, which means that when we eat it, we are more likely to feel anxious and uptight. Sugar also induces the glycation process that weakens collagen. So consuming sugar on a regular basis not only creates skin stress, but also stresses the body. 

So if you are a sweet tooth choose dark chocolate, as it is loaded with powerful anti-oxidants and flavanols that can improve blood flow to the skin. When I feel like something sweet I eat dark chocolate with slices of fresh orange wedges. This combination not only tastes great, but it does great things for your skin as well.

Q3. DO YOU FIND IT DIFFICULT TO EAT HEALTHILY AS A LIFESTYLE APPROACH?

I don’t find it difficult to eat healthily, but this is because I approach food with a friendly mindset. I know many people who set intentions not to eat a particular food ever again, but extreme approaches create tensions in our daily life that we don’t need. 

I practice the 80-20 rule, which means that eighty per cent of what I eat is healthy and twenty per cent allows me to indulge in things that I would not normally eat everyday. It is not one meal that impacts the overall health of your skin, but what you do regularly on a day-to-day basis.

Q4. MANY VEGETARIANS ONLY EAT TOFU. DOES IT HAVE ANY SKIN BENEFITS?

Soy products such soy milk and tofu contains a soy isoflavone called Genistein, which stimulates collagen production and helps to block free radicals that break collagen down and age the skin. 

Natural foods that can support and protect our skin can be found so easily when we know where to look. That is why I firmly believe that with knowledge it becomes very easy to look after the health of our skin at every age.

Q5. YOU ADVOCATE TO USE SALT MODERATELY. WHY?

Plump, healthy, hydrated skin relies on us being mindful of our sodium intake. Consuming too much salt in our diet is an easy thing to do, but it draws water out the skin, which makes it more prone to premature aging. 

Too much salt in the diet leaves skin dry, weakens skins elasticity and makes it more susceptible to wrinkling. But the great thing about our taste buds is that we can retrain them. So if you currently eat with a lot of salt, reduce that amount slowly and you will find your taste buds start adjusting as they become used to the taste of less salt.

Q6. YOU OFTEN MENTION THAT WE SHOULD COUNT OUR BLESSINGS NOT OUR CALORIES. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

Food can create enormous amounts of stress for people and while they are busy counting their calories, they are often depriving their bodies of essential nutrients. 

Depriving our bodies of certain foods stresses the body and that is the last thing we want to do. 

For example many people cut all fat from their diet and turn to low fat foods without realising that cutting out fat from their diet is one of the quickest way to age the skin and take away that natural glow. 

I often see many models doing this. Yet extreme low fat diets age the skin rapidly, resulting in dry, wrinkled skin around the mouth and the eyes. 

The opposite is also true. While a no fat diet can take away that youthful glow, adding good fats to your diet can bring it back. Good fats include the monounsaturated fats found in extra virgin olive oil, flaxseeds, walnuts, avocados, coconut oil and omega-3 fats in fish. These fats moisturise and plump the skin from the inside out, smooth out fine lines and give the skin a healthy, vital glow.

Looking after our skin needs to be approached holistically. Eating should not be about feeling guilty or breaking dietary rules, but making positive nutritional choices that support us to feel good, as well as look good.  

Counting our blessings is about knowing that we are enough as we are, and from that point we can make decisions about positive self care and eating food that supports our overall health and wellbeing. When it comes to preventing premature aging and looking our best at every age, you can’t beat natural foods.
