It seems that nowadays, Social Media dictates how we dress, eat and live. We perceive our worthiness in terms of the likes we get for the latest photo we uploaded on our profiles. We compare ourselves with the photoshopped versions of stars we see in the media. And in the process of trying to look like them, we harm our bodies and self-esteem.
But we forget that whatever and however hard we try; our external appearances will change with age. We cannot look young forever. Real beauty lies within. In our souls and hearts. And when we are at peace from the inside, we feel and look confident on the outside. We radiate real beauty that doesn’t need the aid of harmful cosmetics.
So, how can we feel beautiful from within? Here are a few simple tips.
Define what inner beauty means for you
List out people you admire (not beauty icons please, but real people who inspire with their lives). It doesn’t have to be a famous personality; it can be just anyone that you know well and look up to. Note down their qualities that you respect and appreciate. You will realise that none of them is perfect on the outside. Still, they possess admirable traits like kindness, compassion, determination, dependability, or honesty. Learn how you can bring these qualities to your own self.
Positive thinking has multiple health benefits, including lower depression and increased life span. So, start to focus on your positive qualities, and replace negative thoughts with positive self-talk. Positive thinking doesn’t mean ignoring the realities that surround you. It means accepting circumstances for what they are, and not letting them make you bitter.
Practice self-careSelf-care routines are essential to establish a sense of individual internal beauty. It helps you to attain internal happiness and mental balance. Put effort to improve your emotional, physical, and mental health. Pick up hobbies that make you happy. Do activities that help you feel restored and relaxed. Exercise has been proven to improve mental health along with physical health.
Take time to know yourself
Self-discovery can provide you with the tools required to make changes to your life that lead to cultivating inner beauty. Taking a personality test will help you to identify your personality type and about the traits you should spend time developing. Also, try challenging yourself with new experiences and ideas because this way, you can expand your boundaries for the better.
Your inner beauty is a reflection of integrity and honesty about who you are. Search for ways to be comfortable being yourself and embrace the way you are. Challenge the parts of your personality that need change or improvement, and don’t be afraid to grow.
Identify and regulate sources of stress in your life. This way, you can eliminate bad habits that you may have picked up to cope with stress. Try meditating a few minutes every day. It can encourage you to keep your health and beauty routines and focus on the positivity.
Gossip and negative comments about others will only create negativity in you. Instead, focus on the good. Rather than commenting on someone’s external appearance, focus on their inner beauty. This way, you can enhance and develop your own inner beauty. Being with loving and caring people can improve your personality too.
Let your external appearance resemble your positive internal perceptions; this way, you will feel more confident and attractive both inside and out. Your clothing can influence your thinking skills, as well as your hormone levels and heart rate. Your dressing can also make you appear trustworthy and capable. Dress comfortably and keep yourself neat and clean.
Showing gratitude to those around you is a great way to stay as beautiful as you can be inwards. Feeling appreciative for your life’s circumstances boosts feelings of optimism, enhance performance, and cultivates enthusiasm for life.
As we always like to say, you are unique. From the outside and the inside. Find the real you inside, radiate the beautiful inner you and inspire others to do the same.Categories: Beauty,Read All
