We’ve all had our down days, but the fact remains…there is NOTHING sexier than someone who is confident! See below for quick tips on how to boost and maintain that je ne sais quoi.
DRESS THE PART
When you look good, you FEEL GOOD and while dressing up and putting more effort into your appearance may take time…when you INVEST in yourself, the payoff is TENFOLD! Studies have shown that dressing up can actually change your attitude and boost your mood, while allowing you to feel more self-assured and poised to handle any and every situation.
Exercise lowers depression, relieves stress, reduces your risk of disease, and can improve your overall quality of life. Your day to day activities don’t weigh on you as much because not only do you have the endurance and stamina to face any challenge, but you look good while you do it!
WALK INTO A ROOM LIKE YOU OWN IT
Millions of women around the world can relate to the character Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City because she was vulnerable, authentic, and because she knew how to rock a pair of heels and strut into any room with dignity, class, and confidence! When you stand up straight and walk tall, studies show you automatically feel more attractive and powerful. You feel you have more purpose and direction and that no one can stand in your way.
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Sometimes life places obstacles in our path that force us to really dig deep and try to find the light in situations that seem to drown us in darkness. But with every encounter and experience, we learn a lesson in changing our perspective. When we focus on our inner selves, our outer world becomes a direct reflection of how we feel inside.
HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Just making a list of things you are grateful for daily can instantly change your mood. We are ALL guilty of thinking of all the things we don’t have in our lives, and losing focus on the things we have all been blessed with daily. Make a gratitude list and see your whole day brighten!
SHOW SOME LOVE
Being a woman, and taking on so many responsibilities can be at times overwhelming. That is why as women, it is so important that we all support, compliment and empower one another! No one can understand, relate to, or be as compassionate to your experiences as another woman. Plus, when you authentically reach out and make someone else feel better, you will always receive the same in return when you’re in need. What better motivation than to keep the love going?
