Smart celebrities know the secret to looking good is not about always being seen in the best outfits or even being perfectly groomed 24/7. They are the people who can run out to the grocery store in dress-down jeans or without any make up, because true body and personal confidence depends on incorporating just five key things into their lives.
By focusing attention on just a few key areas, anyone can enjoy the same feel-good factor, regardless of age or gender. That is not to say feeling and looking your best is achievable without any effort at all, but once in place the maintenance aspect of your new lifestyle should be easy to work into the busiest of days.
Invest in Your Teeth
They don’t need to be the straightest or the whitest teeth, but being able to smile with confidence is good for your mental health. Schedule (and attend!) regular checks with your dentist, learn how to clean and floss properly, and make a note in your diary to change your toothbrush at least every three months.
Make the Most of Your Hair
Hair is something people spend lots of money on because they want it to look, smell and feel good, while also risking permanent damage and even hair loss by over-using dryers and styling equipment, stressing their scalp with styles that pull and tug it, or using chemical ridden products that are too harsh. Tackle signs of hair loss fast by adjusting your hair care and styling routines, boosting your vitamin intake, and applying a topical solution such as Scalp Med, which has proven success in restoring lost locks.
Improve Your Self-Talk
The way you talk to yourself in your own mind can make a tremendous difference on how you interact the world around you. Daily affirmations can positively increase your self-confidence if you truly believe them. Some examples are : I am beautiful. I am strong. These simple statements can affect your subconscious and gradually over time change the way you view yourself, and ultimately the way others view you too. Be careful how you speak to yourself, because you will start to believe it.
Exercise for Fun
What you do is not important; the key to feeling good is to do something you enjoy. Make the effort to try new things, who knows, you may hate traditional yoga, but love it in the aerial form; or be last on the floor at a club, but a natural in a belly dancing or jazz dance class. Nothing will increase your self-confidence more than knowing you are taking good care of yourself: Mind, body, and spirit.
Nourish Your Body
Free yourself of those food tyranny habits: stop weighing, measuring, counting and recording everything. Focus instead on eating in moderation from all food groups, and try new things at least once a week. Give your taste buds the chance to adapt to eating healthy food; they are smart enough to do that. Food is such a crucial part of life it is a pity to waste the chance to enjoy it.
Dress to Suit Yourself
Never stop experimenting until you find your natural style, then stick with it. Wearing clothes, shoes and accessories that make you feel good is the only way to feel truly confident, so learn to dress to suit yourself and your lifestyle.
For minimal effort and maintenance you, too, can gain long lasting body and self-confidence, and live the life you deserve. Start making those ground level changes today and see how fast everything falls into place.
