Hey Divas! A New Year is almost upon us. So why not start thinking about ways to make yourself the best you in 2019! And yes, only your opinion of yourself should count.
If you’re going to start loving the skin you’re in then your next move is to start looking in the mirror and nodding approvingly. Sound silly? Maybe, but it’s important. And we’re not promoting vanity, as such; we’re simply suggesting that you value yourself for the way you look and feel. If you’re looking for guidance then the following suggestions should help you to boost your self-confidence and start validating yourself.
Get into a fitness routine. Groan – next! That was probably your initial reaction, but hold up. Exercise might not seem like an exciting way to pursue your goal of self-confidence, but it’s something you should consider for more than the sake of your appearance. Physical activity keeps you healthy. Cardiovascular exercise keeps your heart strong, and resistance training keeps your muscles strong. All forms of exercise keep your mind strong. It releases endorphins in the brain. So, the more you work out, the more enthusiastic you’ll feel. This could help to shift your perception of yourself. After all, a positive mindset is crucial to body confidence: Obviously, achieving a healthier shape will help with this too. Remember, you can’t cut corners when it comes to your waistline. If you want to be happy with your figure in the long-run and keep yourself healthy then a regular fitness routine is essential.
Learn to look at yourself positively. As was mentioned, your primary objective is to start looking at yourself in a positive light when you catch your reflection in the mirror. Brag a little. Why not? If your curves are looking gorgeous then embrace your vivacious physique. If you’re slender and small then embrace your fun size. If you’ve got curves, flaunt them proudly in your own plus size photoshoot. If you’ve been self-conscious of your shape for a long time then putting yourself in the limelight to accentuate your beauty might help to lift your esteem. The mission is to start appreciating your appearance on a daily basis. Looks aren’t the only important thing in life, but you be happy with your own appearance. Make it your goal to write down three kind things about your appearance every day. If you improve your physical wellbeing then those compliments might change as time goes by; you might improve your tone or the definition of your curves. Whatever the case, complimenting yourself helps with self-confidence.
Don’t be a perfectionist. In any other context, that might sound like a lazy piece of advice. It sounds like a teacher telling a kid to have more realistic career goals, right? Except, it’s important to be fair on yourself when you’re trying to improve your self-confidence. We’re not chastising your efforts; we’re just saying to take it easy. Nobody can have the perfect body or the perfect head of hair. Even celebrities criticize their own looks; they’re part of a culture in which appearance is augmented by the media. And that can distort your perception of true beauty. True beauty is staring at you in the mirror, gal. Don’t worry, that’s not a bigheaded statement; we said it, not you. You just need to accept that nobody has a perfect appearance. We’re all flawed, and that’s beautiful. Accept your natural beauty.
