Changes: Put Your Happiness First

If you don’t feel happy with how you look and you’ve tried talking about it, but it makes no difference. Who said that making a change isn’t right? – Sometimes it’s necessary to feel good about ourselves again.

Here are some changes that you can do, subtle and drastic.

Lose Weight

Maybe you’ve gained way too many pounds than you want to admit. (It happens!) This doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. – Stop eating crap and start getting active! It’s that simple. Speak to your doctor is you want some professional advice on how to lose the weight in a safe and healthy way.

Start running, or swimming, boxing, cycling even dancing! – Whatever you can do that will burn that fat, and be enjoyable at the same time. (If you’re not finding it fun – you won’t have the motivation you need and you’ll end up quitting.) If you like to cook, look up the best recipes that are healthy and give you the vitamins you need in your diet.

Clothes

Throw out your whole wardrobe, (sell whatever you can of course! And anything that won’t sell – give to charity.) Then go on the biggest shopping spree of your life! Invest in new trendy tops, hot jeans, gorgeous dresses, and don’t forget the shoes! This is your chance to be impulsive, and indulge in all the things you never thought you could wear. It always helps to bring a friend or two, so you can get their opinion on your looks too. If they’re real friends – they’ll tell you if you look a hot mess!)

Surgery

Are you self-conscious because you’re flat chested, and you can’t wear the dresses you would like to wear? Or maybe you just can’t budge that weight around your thighs. Then surgery may be for you. But remember, this is the last resort! Talk to people first, try losing the weight naturally and try on some boost-up bras. If you really feel like you have done everything you possibly could, but you’re still not feeling good. Make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon and see what they think. (A true surgeon will tell you if you’re ‘unrealistic’ or just too ‘impatient.’)

Hair

Everyone woman gets to that point of ‘enough is enough,’ and we end up doing something terrible to our hair. (Like cutting it ourselves! Or burning off any last strands from bleaching it!) You do not want to do this!! You will regret it – big time. So instead, make an appointment with the hottest hair salon you know of, have a talk about how your feelings, and why you’re not happy with your appearance. A pro hairstylist will be able to figure out exactly what you need to pick you up. Consider a new colour; it’s super exciting, and you’ll look (and feel) like a brand new woman!

Simple Ways To Feel Better About Yourself

Simple Ways To Feel Better About Yourself

Not everybody has self confidence. Self confidence is something that some people are born with, but you’re not out of luck if you aren’t naturally confident. You can train yourself to feel better if you’re consistent. Let’s take a look at some simple ways to feel better about yourself:

Get Some Exercise

Exercise will make you feel better about yourself in so many ways. Of course it’ll make you look better in the long run, but that isn’t the only reason. Exercise releases endorphins, which are the body’s happy hormone. When you exercise, you feel happier on a day to day basis, as well as immediately afterwards. Many people report being on a high! You’ll look better and be healthier too. Exercise is a must, even if it’s just a walk.

Watch What You Eat

Watching what you eat doesn’t imply that you should go on a diet or lose weight. It simply means you should be more mindful of how you fuel your body. Just because things are the same calorie density, does not make them equal. You’re going to feel so much better when you fuel your body with things like fruit and vegetables, rather than sugary items. If you have a real sweet tooth, look into the miracle berry. Many people are using it to cut down on their sugar intake, as it makes things taste delicious without any! Above all else, a balanced diet is crucial to a healthy life. You don’t need to be perfect 100% of the time!

Start Treating Yourself Like A Friend

Don’t punish yourself and be too hard on yourself in your head. Start treating yourself like a friend. Speak to yourself nicely in your head. See the positive in things. Pamper yourself and praise yourself. Loving yourself is a must, but it can take practice. Start now and don’t give up. The relationship we have with ourselves is the most important.

Buy Some New Clothes

Buy yourself some clothes that you feel incredible in. Don’t put it off until you are your ‘target weight’ or anything like that. Dressing in clothes you no longer like or feel comfortable in will make you feel worse, and you could set yourself up for a downward spiral. Buy nice clothes and you’ll feel much better.

Stop Comparing

It’s too easy to compare yourself to bodies and faces in magazines and on the internet. However, most of these aren’t real. The majority are photoshop’ed, even if it’s just a little nip here and smooth over there. It isn’t real! Stop comparing yourself once and for all. Somebody else’s beauty doesn’t take away from your own. There’s nobody like you, and there never will be again. Embrace your uniqueness!

The tips in this guide will help you to feel much better in yourself if you put them into practice regularly. We all have off days, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. Keep working on it and eventually you’ll feel better than ever. Let me know what you think below!
