By Hand On The Hip - 4/16/2019

The world we live in has a lot of problems, and while it may not seem so serious in the grand scheme of things, the increasingly unrealistic standard of beauty is up there with the worst of them. With magazines, social media, and more all around us, young women are constantly fed images of exceptionally beautiful individuals. The looks that these people possess are neither natural nor common, but we’re taught that they’re the norm, making it difficult for most of us to feel beautiful. However, as tough as it can be, with these seven simple tips, it is still possible.

Work On Your Posture
Standing straight and tall can help to limit the stress on your bones and joints, but it’s benefits go far beyond that. Your mind is constantly checking on the rest of your body to find out how you are feeling. This means that, if you walk like you’re stressed up upset, with your head down low and shoulders slumped, then you can become trapped in a cycle of negative thinking. An erect posture, on the other hand, relays confidence, which allows you to feel better about yourself.

Take Care Of Yourself
It’s difficult to look or feel your best when you’re sick or exhausted. Because of this, you must make sure that you learn to take better care of yourself. Getting plenty of sleep is especially important, as it helps to reduce stress and sickness, as well as improve your overall mood and appearance. Creating a bedtime routine can help you to get the eight hours of rest you need each night. It’s also crucial that you eat the right foods, exercise regularly, and attend check-ups.

Switch Up Your Look
Disliking the way you look doesn’t necessarily mean that you look bad. Sometimes your issues are more to do with boredom and repetitiveness than anything else. If you style your hair the same way every day and haven’t bought any new clothes in a while, then this is likely the issue. With that in mind, you should find some way to switch up your look. There are many people who can help you with this if you’re struggling. Even the smallest change can make a huge difference.

Deal With Any Issues
Focusing on your “flaws” and the things you don’t like about your appearance isn’t the best idea. You have so many beautiful features that are much more deserving of your attention. However, if you can’t get past a specific “problem”, and have the means to change it, then you may want to consider doing so. This could mean making permanent physical changes, using fat grafting or rhinoplasty. A step like this shouldn't be taken lightly, but it can definitely be worth it.

Choose Your Friends Wisely
Even on the days you feel great about the skin you’re in, one negative comment can bring your mood right down and shatter your self-confidence. For this reason, it’s vital that you choose the right friends. Make sure that you surround yourself with people who compliment your looks, rather than criticize them, and feel confident in themselves too. This will encourage you to follow suit. If you’re having a hard time with social media, then try turning off your comments for a while.

Create Beauty Around You
The environment you’re in can have a significant impact on your overall mood and wellbeing. With that in mind, it can help to make your house beautiful. Make sure you clear out any clutter, clean the windows and driveway, decorate with happy colors, and add plenty of plants and greenery. You should also put up art, play beautiful music and tidy up the garden so that you can spend in there. When you surround yourself with beauty, it can help you to feel beautiful too.

Put On A Smile
A smiling face looks much more attractive than a non-smiling one. It lifts the muscles around your lips and eyes, creating a more youthful appearance, and seems overall more approachable. Smiles are also highly contagious, which means that when you smile it encourages others to do the same. Like standing tall, smiling can also trick your brain into thinking that you’re in a good mood even when you aren’t. For this reason, making an effort to smile more is beneficial.

When the whole world is constantly fed such an unrealistic beauty standard, feeling beautiful is not an easy task. In fact, it’s one of the toughest. That being said, with the advice above, you should find it to be a lot easier to feel comfortable and happy in your own skin.
