How often do you criticize yourself? Probably more than you should, and it’s high time you did something about it. However, there are simple tips and tricks how to feel and look better. Remember that your inner self reflects on your face, so the moment you start feeling better about yourself and start being self-satisfied; it will immediately show on your face. If you’re not satisfied with the current state of events, make sure to try something of the following:
1. Surround yourself with positive people
Having positive people around you is perhaps the most important tip here. Not only because they will make you feel better about yourself, but it’s always better to have positive energy around you all the time. Try to stay away from negative people altogether and from people who make you feel not good enough. You definitely need someone who can pay you a compliment anytime you do something right, and make sure to do the same as compliment someone is a very good deed.
2. Accept your weaknesses
Each and every one of us has certain weaknesses. Come on, nobody’s perfect, not even Beyoncé. So another important thing is that you accept your weaknesses and embrace them. Of course, if you’re not satisfied with them, you should try your best to turn them into your strengths, but bottom line is that you should never be embarrassed of your weaknesses. The moment you perceive them as bad, everyone else will, too. Instead, accept your weaknesses proudly and say to yourself that you will try to get rid of them. And if you fail, no biggie. We are human, and we all make mistakes.
3. Look how you want to
Physical appearance can either make or break a person’s self-esteem, so it’s always an imperative to be satisfied with the way we look. Wearing things we want should be done with confidence, as when you’re confident enough, you can pull off practically anything. If you are, on the other hand, unsatisfied with an aspect of your face, don’t be afraid to change it.
Microblading is, for instance, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures at the moment, and if new and perfect brows are going to make you more confident and happier, why not get them? Make sure that you choose a good company that invests a lot in high-quality and detailed microblading training and get those eyebrows that you want. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about if you want a bit of a touch-up here or there.
4. Learn how to say “no”
Contrary to popular belief, “no” is a word that has a very strong connotation. Even though it is most often associated with negative thoughts, saying this big word doesn’t have to be always negative. Remember that you should always put yourself first, and it’s completely OK to be selfish at times. Somebody asked you to help them ten times, but you would rather do something else? Saying “no” to the things you don’t feel like doing at that very moment can significantly help you improve your mood and be happier altogether. Instead, take that time and indulge in hobbies that you like.
5. Practice yoga and meditation
Speaking of hobbies, it’s very important to have one. Even if you already do, taking up yoga or meditation as a hobby can do wonders for your whole body and mind. You don’t need a lot – you simply need to take 15 minutes every day to sit in a good posture, turn off your mind for everything and simply listen to your breathing. Concentrate on yourself and you will see the difference. Yoga is extremely healthy for many reasons, so make sure to at least try and figure out why.
As you can see, it’s not difficult to be satisfied with yourself. Perhaps you’re unsatisfied with your work, family or another aspect of your life that you cannot change at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot work on yourself. Always be happy and glad for the things that you have. Better times will come, but only if you think positively and work on yourself.
