For the new study, researchers collected data from 107 young people ages 18 to 36 (the average age of participants was about 20). People completed a baseline survey and then a detailed daily survey for eight consecutive days.

The researchers’ key finding was that on days when study participants experienced higher-than-normal levels of stress, they also reported looking and feeling older. But that was only on days when they had less control than usual over their own lives.

At the same time, levels of stress and control were relative. So, a person could report a fairly low level of stress, but if it was higher than the person’s normal level, scientists saw a change.

All of the findings are important because it is known that chronic stress can cause negative effects over time. People also often report increased stress levels in their 40s and 50s.

All findings were published in the journal Mental Health Science.
