10 Tips to Get Your Outward Appearance in Order – for Women

10 Tips to Get Your Outward Appearance in Order – for Women

Though nobody is born with perfect looks, all it takes is a little bit of time and effort each day to look and feel your best. Mostly comprised of little changes that can be made in just a small amount of time, these are some simple alterations that you can make in order to feel great on the inside and boost your outward appearance at the same time. You will feel the results for a long time while reveling in your newfound confidence.

1. Hydrate

Not being hydrated is one of the biggest reasons that people look and feel worn out, and a continued loss of water throughout the day will steal your energy and add to an exhausted appearance. Drinking one large glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning will boost your metabolism and begin the process of flushing toxins out of the body through the urine. Staying adequately hydrated will contribute to clearer skin and an overall feeling of being more energetic.

2. Basic Hygiene

Regular brushing and flossing will lend to a pretty smile. Each day remember to take a shower, change your clothing, clean your ears, file your nails, and brush your hair to make sure that your appearance is attractive. Completing a daily routine to include all of these things will have you feeling great on the inside while looking your best on the outside.

3. Practice Good Posture

How you carry yourself will influence how you are perceived by others. Refrain from slouching; straight posture exudes confidence and self-assurance which contribute to attractiveness. Double check that you are wearing the correct bra size as it can affect posture.

4. Sleeping Enough

Early signs of aging can be attributed to a lack of sleep. The body regenerates itself most when a person is sleeping. The less sleep, the less time the skin has to regenerate. Seven to eight hours of sleep a night is recommended for anyone to not only feel good, but look good the next day. Remember to sleep on your back to give yourself a mini-facelift while recharging.

5. Eating Healthy

Eat more nuts, whole grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables while cutting out those foods that are refined, processed, and artificial. It is not necessary to have a strict diet at all times, and occasional indulgences are totally okay. The “unnatural” foods are not conducive to clear skin or a fit physique.

6. Moving Your Body

Jogging, running, or walking briskly each day for ten minutes is the very least to be done for obtaining some health benefits. When exercising, the body works up the circulatory system, leading to a complexion that glows, and a more youthful appearance of hair and skin.

7. Covering Your Flaws

Similar to accentuating your best features, aim to conceal the features that you don’t love. If struggling with a double chin, a blouse with a dramatic neckline will draw the eyes away from the chin. If dark circles under your eyes are the problem, these are easily fixed with any number of cosmetics.

8. Know Your Best Features

Each woman has at least one unique thing that they love about themselves- their thick hair, almond eyes, hourglass figure, etc. The trick is to identify this feature and play it up so that attention is drawn to it.

9. Having Great Hair

There are many things that go into having great hair. The right hair products for your hair type, the frequency of washing (hint: only a few times a week is ideal, the natural oils provide shine and protection), and even the right haircut will all improve your outward appearance and likely make you feel great, too.

10. Remember to Smile

A genuine smile will brighten your appearance and will make you instantly more attractive and approachable. It will also give you a boost in your mood. A forced smile will make you seem awkward or unsure.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
