There are periods in our lives when we feel like the most empowered, attractive, and beautiful women ever… but then, the negativity creeps in and we start questioning ourselves and our appearance.
There are always things you can do to improve your self image and the way people see you. If you haven’t been feeling like your best self lately, take a look at these 13 things you can do to make yourself feel fabulous again.
1. Posture is everything
The way you feel about yourself and the way people see you will change the instant you start standing straight.
Not only does your body look much more gracious when you’re maintaining good posture but you also spread confidence, and that’s the basis of being attractive and feeling attractive.
2. Do something exciting
Try doing something new to get your blood pumping and your heart working faster. It will make you feel alive again, and feeling alive will show in your appearance and attitude.
Doing something out of your comfort zone is a foolproof way to get yourself feeling more confident and more attractive.
3. Accept who you are
There might be some things about you that you wish were different. That’s okay. Everyone – and I mean everyone – feels the same way.
The difference between feeling attractive and looking attractive is accepting who you are and realizing that, while everyone has flaws, there’s no reason to focus on them.
4. Work on your mind first
If you’re burying too many negative emotions inside your mind, it will show on the outside too. Work on your inner self and it will show on the outside.
You’re probably carrying a lot of problems, stress, and negative thoughts inside that pretty little head of yours. Resolving them should be your number one priority.
5. Act confident
If you’re not feeling perfectly confident with your body, you can start by acting confident. Apply a ‘fake it until you make it’ kind of attitude.
People are attracted by confidence, and acting confident will get you the necessary attention you need to continue working on yourself.
6. Wear flattering clothes
Everyone can look attractive wearing the right clothes. If you wear something that doesn’t flatter your figure, of course you won’t look your best.
Check your body shape and educate yourself about which kinds of clothes you should wear based on that, your skin tone, and the color of your hair.
Once you have all the right clothes feeling attractive will come naturally.
7. Smile more
You never see people in commercials and ads frowning, am I right? Smiling more is a foolproof way to look more attractive.
When you smile or laugh you look happier, more easy-going, and optimistic. And most importantly, a fake smile can trick your brain into thinking more positively.
There’s a reason someone said that a woman’s smile is the prettiest curve on her whole body.
8. Wear nice lingerie
If you’re the type of girl who never pays attention to her underwear and wears pretty much anything as long as it’s clean, you’ll be surprised how much more attractive nice lingerie can make you feel.
It doesn’t matter that no one sees it, having something delicate and well made on your bare skin will make you feel more sensual and romantic.
9. Try flirting
The essence of feeling attractive is knowing that we are the subject of someone’s desire. Try some innocent (or not so innocent) flirting to feel more desirable and therefore more attractive.
Don’t get discouraged if the person you’re flirting with doesn’t respond the way you expected them to, it’s not a big deal.
You’re not trying to find a relationship, you’re simply investigating different ways of approaching people you might be attracted to.
If you’re feeling tense, tired, and overwhelmed there’s no way you’ll feel attractive. Life might not be treating you well but it’s absolutely necessary for you to find a way to relax.
Maybe you like reading, or hiking… Whatever it is that helps you feel more comfortable in your own skin you should find a way to make it a part of your busy schedule.
11. Pamper yourself
Giving yourself and your body a bit of extra love and care will go a long way. If you can, make an appointment at a spa or create your own spa day at home.
Light some candles, put on some relaxing music, give yourself a mani-pedi treatment, put a nurturing mask on your hair and face, and enjoy.
Your body will appreciate this but your mind will too. Nothing is more attractive than a woman who knows how to take care of herself.
12. Good health is the basis of everything
Eat well, sleep enough, take your vitamins, and try to add some physical activity to your everyday schedule.
Being healthy and feeling healthy is the most important part in the process of getting yourself to be more attractive and feel more attractive.
13. Find a haircut that suits you perfectly
The perfect haircut makes all the difference in your appearance. If you’ve ever had a haircut that was completely wrong for your face shape and your personality, you know exactly what this is about.
Getting the right haircut will make you a whole new, interesting, empowered woman who knows where she’s going and what she wants.
