Comfortable in your own skin
Do you not feel comfortable in your own skin? With these tips, that will soon be over.
- Be proud
Be proud of 3 things about yourself. For example: you’re always there for other people, you’re a good dancer or your Instagram photos are great.
- Feel beautiful
Look at yourself naked in the mirror. Name 3 things you think are beautiful. That shouldn’t be too difficult. You have pretty eyes, a good figure, lovely nails or even teeth. If you feel beautiful, you radiate that too. Which makes other people think you’re more beautiful too.
- Stop comparing
Stop comparing yourself to fashion models, pop stars and film stars. Did you know that make-up, lighting and Photoshop can make anyone look that beautiful? Film stars often look quite ordinary when they’re not working.
- Do something fun
Do something fun with your friends. Get up off the couch and go to the movies, exercise or play a game. When you enjoy yourself, you are more comfortable in your skin. And if you do it with people you like, you feel even better.
- Take some exercise
When you exercise, your body releases substances (endorphins), which make you feel good. And a little exercise never hurts when it comes to keeping that divine body of yours in shape. Go for a cycle ride, walk the dog or take a run round the park.
- Take care of yourself
Head to toe, crown to crotch. Wear clean clothes. And smell good. Use a nice soap, body lotion or fragrance every day. Don’t overdo it though. Otherwise, everyone will steer well clear of you!
- Treat yourself
Create leisure time. Buy something nice for yourself, especially when you've had to do a lot of studying. Take a long shower or a nice hot bath. When you pamper yourself, you feel more comfortable in your own skin, and you’re more able to pamper someone else.
