Would you like to feel good about the way you look? We all have issues with our body and whether it’s something little that nobody notices apart from you or it’s something that gets you down there are little things you can do to help you feel better about your body.
Walk Tall – Carrying yourself with a great posture rather than a shrugged one makes you appear more confident. It’s amazing how it can affect you when you walk like this.
Fake Some Confidence – The expression fake it til you make it comes to mind and much like the first point, if you put across a confident image you will actually feel confident, and this has been scientifically proven.
Eat Healthily – Feeling good about your body on the outside begins on the inside so get your share of proteins, carbs and vitamins from fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fish. Aim to eat a balanced diet.
Look After Your Feet – Look after them and they will look after you. A lot of us feel we have ugly feet and this could be due to something simple like bunions. If you’ve got issues, try a local podiatry or somewhere like PerthFootCentre.com.au if you’ve got a problem that’s been bothering you for a while.
Exercise – Take a walk, go for a run it’s all good for you. It will give you a lot more confidence inside and out and you’ll start to feel better about your body.
Treat Yourself – A lot about feeling confident with your body is having the ability to pig out once in a while. Give yourself something to look forward to and you’ll feel better.
Don’t Compare Yourself To Others – It’s always a cliché but there is only one version of you so make it the best one.
Ignore Size – Clothes sizes in every store are never the same! Always try on clothes and look at how they fit on your body rather than just assuming you are a specific size.
Look In The Mirror – It’s never as bad as you think it is, so don’t avoid the mirror. Knowing what you really look like (rather than just the image in your head) will make you feel better about your body.
Smile – This will affect you internally and it’s another way of faking it until you make it, you’ll find that your demeanour improves.
Find Your Mantra – we all need a bit of self-love sometimes, and the right mantra can put this in the right frame of mind. Check out Malacollective.com to get an idea of what sort of mantra will be suitable for you.
Realize How Amazing Your Body Is – Your body is capable of making creating and doing so many cool things. Look at how a baby learned to walk, and maybe it’ll give you a new found appreciation.
Give Yourself The Advice You Would Give To A Friend – We never take our own advice and maybe we should sometimes!
Get Yourself A Power Stance – One that makes you unleash your inner Wonder Woman. It does a lot for nerves and anxiety. Observe how successful people stand and copy their stance. Show you are confident.
Breathe – Stop and take a breath! It’s never as bad as you think it is, so calm down.
Look At Who You Admire – They’ve gone through the same issues as you, and have come out the other side.
Accept Yourself – This is the biggest challenge of all and once you’ve overcome it, you will truly be relaxed with who you are in your own body and then you’ll feel better about your body.
