If the clothes make the man, what can they do for women? Looking and feeling good is about so much more than your clothes. Looking and feeling good is physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual. Your inner woman will thank you when you focus on these essentials. It’s amazing what happens when you do things to intentionally feel great.
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Have you ever gotten a good night’s sleep? That feeling of being refreshed when you wake up is how you should feel every day. With a few adjustments, you can easily improve the quality of your sleep. One is to sleep in the dark. I mean really really dark. Put up blackout curtains if you must, and watch out for lights from electronic devices. The second thing you can do is to put down your technology before bed. The blue lights that your smartphone and computer emit can block your body’s ability to make melatonin, which is the hormone that helps you fall asleep and stay asleep.
Skin Care Routine
Who doesn’t want their skin to look vibrant and healthy? A good skincare routine helps you do just a little something every day to ensure your skin looks and feels more healthy. Some parts of good skincare involve protecting it from the day’s harmful UVA/UVB rays, washing and cleansing, and exfoliating. You can go as simple or elaborate as you like. But you’ll need to cleanse your face especially if you wear makeup during the day. Even just water and a good washcloth can go a long way each night to keep your face looking and feeling its best.
Wear Clothes That Fit
No one feels good in clothes that are ill-fitting. While you may want to fit back into your skinny jeans, you’ll feel much better in your body if you find clothes that fit you now. Many retailers offer beautiful designer plus size clothing that look great on any body. Clothes that are your current size don’t need to be lesser items. Invest in something you love that leaves you feeling confident and beautiful. It’s amazing what happens when you put on clothes that hug your curves in all the right ways. Whether you’re lean and lanky or plus-sized, find styles and patterns you love and that compliment your body.
Make Time for Fun
Whether you love to dance, lay out at the beach, enjoy good food at local eateries, or read a good book, you need to do something fun. Having fun regularly shows on your face. You’ll be amazed at the difference a fun outing can do. If you need to make time for hobbies you love, or traveling to places you love, fun is what makes life more exciting. Fun won’t happen on its own, so be sure to prioritize it in your life.
Buy the funky jewelry and the red heels. Splurge on the sunglasses that make you look like a million bucks. Accessories take any look to a whole new level. If you need a boost of confidence, wear the earrings, rock the new handbag, and pick out something that you love for you. Fashion is more than just clothes. Fashion helps you express yourself and connect with people on a unique level. Conversations are started over clothes and special accessories.
This isn’t about ignoring real issues in life. It’s about confronting obstacles with a can-do attitude. There is a saying that if you think you can or you can’t, you’re right. Staying positive is about thinking you can and then going after goals with an attitude of success. Whether it takes you one try or 100, you’ll be amazed at what happens when you have a positive attitude. People with a positive attitude are more enjoyable to be around as well. You’ll find people will gravitate toward your positive outlook in life.
Looking and feeling your best is more than picking pretty clothes. It’s about giving your body what it needs for rest and rejuvenation. It’s about picking clothes that are fun and you feel great in. It’s about approaching life with a positive outlook so you can overcome any challenge.
