10 Reasons Why You Are Attractive

10 Reasons Why You Are Attractive

Before you read any further, will you do me a quick favor? Find a mirror, take a look at yourself, and pay attention to the thoughts and feelings that run through your head. Don’t feel silly. It’s okay. And I’ll still be here when you get back (promise). 

Done? Let’s continue. How did that feel? Did your brain think positive thoughts like, “I look super cute today!” or did you put yourself down because you hate your thighs, hips, arms, or (insert body part here)? If I had to guess, I imagine most of you put yourselves down (and you need to stop doing that). Have you ever had a friend who was so skinny that a high gust of wind could carry her away, yet she never stopped talking about how “fat” she was. She felt this way because the mirror is a dirty liar. What you see in your reflection has a lot more to do with how you perceive yourself than how others perceive you. We are all guilty of beating ourselves up, so to encourage a healthy dose of self-love, I made a list of 10 reasons why you are attractive (yes, I’m talking to you!). 

1. You care.

You can’t put a price tag on genuine care and concern. Imagine all of the lives you have touched by the simple act of caring. There are few things more attractive than compassion.

2. You have strength of character.

No matter what life throws at you, you keep moving forward. No matter how many times you fall down, you keep getting back up. No matter how many struggles you face, you stand firm. Your strength to keep on living and stay true to yourself speaks highly of your character.

3. Your hair is gorgeous (and fun to play with).

Blonde, black, brown, red, yellow, pink, or polka-dotted? Doesn’t matter. Long and luxurious, suave and styled, short and sweet, spiked like a punk? All good. Maybe you don’t even have hair, and that’s okay too, because then your head will be all soft and smooth!

4. Your smile makes me smile.

There is nothing more attractive than a genuine smile. Show your pearly whites because happiness is contagious.

5. Mmmmm, brains…

sapiosexual (n.): a personal sexually attracted to intelligence or the human mind

Your wit tickles my brain’s fancy. Your unquenchable thirst for knowledge is uber attractive.

6. You are fascinated with the world.

Curiosity about the world and everything in it is a super attractive trait. The ceaseless asking of the question “Why?” means you will never run out of things to learn about, read about, and talk about.

7. Giggle, giggle, giggle, snort!

Laughing is one of the best calorie-burning activities ever. Keep sharing giggles with everyone you come across because there is already enough darkness in the world. Be a source of light instead.

8. R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Debating about things like politics and religion can grow our perspective and help us see where other people are coming from. But your ability to treat people equally no matter how different from you they may be is an attractive quality that shows you are worthy of respect.

9. You give thanks.

Your gratefulness shows that you appreciate the people who help you and the blessings in your life. If we can’t be thankful for what we do have, what makes us think obtaining what we don’t have will make us feel any better? Your thankfulness is incredibly attractive.

10. You are who you are.

There is nothing more attractive than a person who is 100% comfortable in his or her skin. Love your body. Be unapologetic about who you are. Walk with confidence. Hug yourself because you are beautiful. Love yourself because you are wonderful. Smile because you deserve it.

I hope you enjoyed this list of 10 reasons why you are attractive and I would be thrilled if you would leave a comment with something you love about yourself. That could be a favorite feature of your body, a personality trait you think is neat, or a character strength that helps you succeed. Let’s hear it!

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
