In This Video Women All Over The World Show You Beauty Is A Choice

In This Video Women All Over The World Show You Beauty Is A Choice

Dove uploaded a new video with a message to every woman around the world: You are beautiful, you simply have to choose it for yourself.

Dove has been campaigning for what real beauty is since 2004. Their goal is to educate and inspire women worldwide to widen their definition of beauty and to make them more confident about themselves. They say, “feeling beautiful is a choice we make every day,” but women barely use the word beautiful to describe themselves. Also, girls all over the world are so concerned with the way they look that they do not participate fully in their daily activities. Dove wants to make beauty a source of confidence, not anxiety.

Society wants you to believe your beauty depends on the way you dress and how you look when you leave your house. For example, if you look in magazines or at famous people, you mostly see slim bodies in perfect clothing and make-up. They try to sell you expensive cosmetics by putting up pictures of professionally groomed people. They set the standard impossibly high. But when you walk through a city, how many women really look so ‘perfect’?

This video shows you that you have a choice. Every day, you can decide you are beautiful. True beauty is not decided by anyone else, but yourself. It does not matter how you look. It is about how you feel and how you want to express yourself.

So now it is up to you to decide. What is beauty really about to you? Does it matter what you think about yourself? Does it matter what others think of you? Do you think you are beautiful?

Which door would you go through?

    Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

    I talk a lot to myself. It helps me to keep my concentration on the activity on hand, makes me focus more on my studies, and gives me some pretty brilliant ideas while chattering to myself; more importantly, I produce better works. For example, right now, as I am typing, I am constantly mumbling to myself. Do you talk to yourself? Don’t get embarrassed admitting it because science has discovered that those who talk to themselves are actually geniuses… and not crazy!

    Research Background

    Psychologist-researcher Gary Lupyan conducted an experiment where 20 volunteers were shown objects, in a supermarket, and were asked to remember them. Half of them were told to repeat the objects, for example, banana, and the other half remained silent. In the end, the result shown that self-directed speech aided people to find the objects faster, by 50 to 100 milliseconds, compared to the silent ones.

    “I’ll often mutter to myself when searching for something in the refrigerator or the supermarket shelves,” said Gary Lupyan.

    This personal experience actually made him conduct this experiment. Lupyan, together with another psychologist, Daniel Swigley, came up with the outcomes that those to talk to oneself are geniuses. Here are the reasons:

    It stimulates your memory

    When you are talking to yourself, your sensory mechanism gets activated. It gets easier on your memory since you can visualize the word, and you can act accordingly.[1]

    It helps stay focused

    When you are saying it loud, you stay focused on your task,[2] and it helps you recognise that stuff immediately. Of course, this only helps if you know what the object you are searching looks like. For example, a banana is yellow in colour, and you know how a banana looks like. So when you are saying it loud, your brain immediately pictures the image on your mind. But if you don’t know what banana looks like, then there is no effect of saying it loud.

    It helps you clarify your thoughts

    Every one of us tends to have various types of thoughts. Most make sense, while the others don’t. Suppose you are furious at someone and you feel like killing that person. Now for this issue you won’t run to a therapist, will you? No, what you do is lock yourself in a room and mutter to yourself. You are letting go off the anger by talking to yourself, the pros and cons of killing that person, and eventually you calm down. This is a silly thought that you have and are unable to share it with any other person. Psychologist Linda Sapadin said,[3]

    “It helps you clarify your thoughts, tend to what’s important and firm up any decisions you are contemplating.”
