Women are desperate to stop feeling so self-conscious all the time. It’s a horrible feeling! From how we look, to how we feel and smell, we are always worrying about something! But it’s about time we do something about it to build confidence.
One of the best ways to get confidence is to fake it first. Look at women in magazines and pretend you look like them. Pick a hot celebrity you admire and picture her whenever you need a confidence boost. But remember, even celebrities have imperfections, but instead of showing them, they carry themselves like they are perfection.
Have An Alter Ego
Whether it’s stripping off in the bedroom or heading to a meeting at work, if you don’t feel up to it, channel your alter ego and imagine how she would handle it. It sounds so false and corny, but it does work! So give her a name!
Walk With Your Head Held High
Put on your favorite designer heels, and strut your stuff. If you look shy and hunched over, everyone will instantly feel how self-conscious you are, but if you walk tall and powerful, you’ll look and feel much better. Just don’t forget to breathe!
Remember Your Senses
Find a fragrance which makes you feel sexy, and make sure you wear it. If there is a fabric or texture which makes you feel happy, try to incorporate it into your outfit. Using your senses will triple your confidence, plus, everyone looks that bit better when they smell divine!
Don’t diet, just eat the things that are good for you. If you’re not too sure, there are services out there; that send you all the ingredients you need (with the recipe) right to your front door! For more information, like the cost of Blue Apron and other business, take a look online.
Healthy eating is a great way of feeling body confident because you will no longer have anything to feel ‘guilty’ about.
Take A Compliment
If someone tells you you’re looking cute today, don’t throw it back in their face by disagreeing! If you feel awkward and have no response – just say thank you.
Learning to take compliments is hard, but once you can, you’ll realize how much they boost your confidence.
Reach That Goal
Give yourself targets and treat them like work deadlines. Get naked in front of your man, try a new hairstyle or go for a promotion at work. Goals will motivate you, and whether they are directly linked to your body or not, once you’ve lifted your self-esteem, you’ll feel much happier.
What’re Your Thoughts?
Low body confidence can be difficult to deal with, and it can turn into something more serious like anxiety and depression. So if you do start feeling down – talk to someone, whether that be a friend, family member or a professional. You don’t have to go through it alone.
