Love the Skin You Are in
Now before you linch us for making a trite comment, let us explain. How often do you spend worrying about how you look? It is fair to say that most women spend a lot of time thinking about their looks and wishing it could be different. With that in mind, we also invest inordinate amounts of time in going to the gym, reading food labels and mentally chastising ourselves when we slip and chow down on a family size bag of crisps and a bar of chocolate because we had a stressful day. Now you are smiling because you totally identify with these emotions right? But, seriously the stress is the bad bit, and while we accept that diet and exercise are a part of most women’s lives, we want to encourage you to love the skin you are in. Life will seem much easier if you can smile and love the skin you are in – but how?
Big Up Your Best Bits
Whether you reluctantly acknowledge you have terrific eyes or you actually quite like your hands, building up these parts is a great way to lift your confidence. Have a manicure and purchase a beautiful new ring or bracelet, or get some new eye make up and really make your eyes a focal point. Enjoy the good and leave the bad on the back burner for a while.
Dress to Impress
So, how many times have you bought an outfit that doesn’t really fit? We all do it, whether you just don’t want the sales assistant to see your size of jeans or whether you have it as a target outfit, only having clothes that barely fit won’t do anything for your self-confidence and body positivity. So, get something in your size and embrace your body for what it is. We may be slightly biased but a gorgeous bra and pants set can really make you feel a million dollars. Hold your head up high and accept that that this is you, and girl, you are fine.
Push Out the Confidence
When you are out and about be that woman that everyone wants to emulate. There are some fantastic female body confidence ambassadors out there; you only have to look at female comedians as a great starting point. Now, you do not have to go up on a stage and poke fun at your own flaws, but you can take a leaf out of their book with a beaming smile, a larger than life posture and the ability to acknowledge everyone and make them feel better in the process. If we all greeted our friends with a compliment can you image how much brighter we would all feel? If no one seems to be telling you how amazing you are, then tell yourself in the mirror every morning, mental positivity is a great way to generate body positivity.
