5 Style Tips To Stand Out Among Your Peers

5 Style Tips To Stand Out Among Your Peers

The desire to be noticed by peers is a natural human tendency. Your style – the way you dress up, the way you carry yourself out, the trends you follow- plays a key role in helping you stand out in a crowd of faces. Also, it tells a lot of things about your personality.

Simply following the overused fashion trends or wearing expensive clothes will not help you get a distinct style. However, a few simple, yet effective, tips can help you get your mojo.

Here are 5 style tips that will make you stand out among your peers.

1. Be yourself.

Why be a second-rate version of anybody else when you can be the first rate version of yourself? Nothing will help you stand out of the crowd more than your originality and authenticity because there can be only one you. Everyone has their own belief, way of thinking, mind-set and experiences that shape his style.

However, self-doubt and fear of disapproval drive many to abandon their ways and follow what everyone else is doing. Imitating others will make you just another face in a crowd. Break free from the conformist approach to fashion and let your style reflect your individuality.

2. Be bold.

If you want to express your personality through fashion, you will have to be fearless. When you try something different, at first, you will have to overcome your fears of rejection. Then, you have to face people who do not approve of your fashion sense.

Let’s face it; you can’t please everyone. The way you dress, the way you carry yourself will rub some people the wrong way. People have a habit of criticizing what they do not understand. Do not let the naysayers determine your style. You can and should have your own style. In fact, explore and experiment with different styles that may be completely non-conventional to find something that you prefer.

3. Keep an open mind.

Open-mindedness help you see things from a different perspective, understand others, find opportunities, and learn from others. The benefits of having an open mind can be very helpful in defining your style. There are several styles that you should explore and determine what suits your personality.

Who knows, you may be a goth or punk or any other alternative fashion enthusiast, yet to discover your true calling. Even if you are not awed by a particular style, you can always draw inspirations from it to incorporate into your own style.

4. Keep up with recent trends.

Fashion is forever evolving. What worked yesterday, may not work today. Take the bell bottom trousers for example – a highly sought after apparel at its pinnacle in the 60s and 70s, hardly anyone wears them nowadays. As society changes, so does fashion.

Changing trends reflect the changes in people’s taste. Similarly, your sense of fashion changes as you garner more experience in life. Keeping track of the latest trends will help you redefine your style. While it is not absolutely necessary to follow every new trend, which is impossible, you can emulate the ones that you like.

5. Wear your confidence.

Your attitude when wearing an attire can make a significant difference on how you look. You can wear a very beautiful dress, but if you can’t carry it with confidence, it will not look good on you. On the other hand, even an average dress looks fabulous on people who wear it confidently.

Just look at Lady Gaga. Her dresses may be very weird, but she wears them with such self-assuredness that people are in awe of her. In contrast, picture a girl uncomfortably wearing high heels. Her awkward strides will only draw winces from people seeing her. The role of confidence on your personality can’t be overstated. If you are unsure about your outfit, do not wear it.

Do not wear an uncomfortable dress just because everyone is wearing it or because it really suits your friend. Similarly, when you don an attire, trust yourself and wear it confidently. Remember, it is okay to have your own style as long as you are confident with it.

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
