10 Secrets to Looking and Feeling Great (Inside and Out)

10 Secrets to Looking and Feeling Great (Inside and Out)

Nobody is immune to waking up in the morning and not feeling beautiful, for no particular reason. It happens to the best of us, but this feeling will dim any confidence and put a damper on the day. Even on the worst days, it is possible to get into the mindset of feeling amazing inside and out—here’s how!

1. Eat Well

What you put into your body does impact your mood. Avoid foods that are processed, laced with antibiotics, and high in carbs or sugar. The chemical that makes you happy, serotonin, is primarily made in the gut. Watch what you eat!

2. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Each person is unique, therefore everyone has positive attributes that others may lack. Remember, that to feel beautiful you must view yourself as an individual, and not as a person that is to be compared to someone else. This is an awful trap that causes people to measure their worth against that of others.

3. Get Plenty of Exercise

This is one of the best ways to feel happy and healthy. It is a natural mood booster due to the endorphins that are released. It doesn’t have to be a full hour workout, put on your walking shoes and take a short walk. Even a simple shoulder workout will release these endorphins while working to eliminate arm flab.

4. Dress How You Want to Feel

Wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt are comfortable and will put you in a mood to relax, but if this has become your norm, aim to dress up at least twice a week. This will lift your mood and boost your confidence, making you feel as beautiful as you truly are.

5. Find Peace of Mind

Think about what you value in life, and are you living true to them? Are you constantly worried about the little things? Are you overwhelmed all the time? Take a look at your daily life and cut out the things that you can- it will give you more free time and peace of mind.

6. Heighten Your Facial Care

Discover a new beauty product, whether it is a new foundation for your makeup or a product that will help to get rid of acne fast. These are things that are small changes, but will no doubt change the way that you feel. Knowing that you are taking the best care of your skin will add to your confidence.

7. Confidence is Key

This is how people become the center of attention- regardless of what they look like. When you want to look the part you must act like it. Get rid of the negative thoughts and reward yourself with positive reassurance. Focus on what you love about yourself, and know that you are fabulous every day.

8. Treat Yourself

Take a break when you feel that it is needed, and pamper yourself when you feel that it is needed. Feelings of anxiety, stress, and tiredness will not help you with feeling beautiful. Choose to take part in any relaxing activities that you love.

9. Be Aware of your Body and Facial Expressions

Good posture says that an individual feels confident and beautiful without using verbal communication. Even on days that you do not feel beautiful, try to sit and stand with your shoulders back, not slouching. Smiling is also an instant way to boost a mood for yourself and others that catch it.

10. Create Something

Allow your inner beauty to reflect the beauty that is inside of you. Create spaces that are pretty to look at, whether it is an updated arrangement on a coffee table or a new flower box outside of a large window.
