They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if you have poor vision? Do you see yourself through a negative blur? So many of us today are caught up on what we wish we had or how we desire to look that we forget to be grateful for what we’ve got. There are many beauty tips out there that involve products, diet plans, and different clothing, but there’s a lot more to beauty than what’s on the surface. Here are some quick beauty pick-me-ups that will help you to embrace the fact that you are beautifully and wonderfully made.
Positive affirmations: Look in the mirror and fill your reflection with encouragement, hope, and strength.
Positive people: People who uplift you are there to have faith in you until you have faith in yourself.
Stop comparing yourself to others: Realize that the media’s standards of beauty are unrealistic. Not only that, but the more you compare yourself to others, the less time you have to appreciate you. Make a conscientious change today!
Let go of the past: Your past is called a past for a reason. If you live your life staring in the rearview mirror, you will miss all the precious things around you. Not to mention you are bound to crash! Let go and move forward.
Grateful list: This is your personal account of everything in your life that you should make a habit of appreciating. This could be a list of accomplishments, basic needs that are met like your five senses, amazing people in your life, your family and friends, your nation’s freedom and more.
Eat healthy: You are what you eat, so do your body a favor and fill it with vitamins and healthy choices.
Exercise: Breaking a little sweat will activate your natural endorphins and you’ll feel better about yourself literally every step of the way.
Smile: Because it’s contagious.
Posture: Be good to your spine and do your best to increase correct posture.
Compliment others: You get what you give.
Thought: Take all negative thoughts captive and replace them with positive ones.
Nature: Connect with nature and all its beauty.
Sleep: Get enough sleep so you can tackle the day and rid yourself of unneeded health problems and irritability.
Pamper yourself: Because you deserve it.
