Our Blog ›Inside Out Beauty ~ February 2013 Edition
Posted by Liz Slaughter
on February 1, 2013
Most of us have already broken our New Year’s resolutions by now. For many of us, those abandoned commitments had a lot to do with how we would improve our appearance in one way or another. It’s totally natural to feel down about your appearance every now and then, but that doesn’t mean that it should become a habit either. Whether you’ve fallen out of love with your hair, makeup or are struggling with your weight, the larger issue about not feeling your best comes from inside. Making subtle adjustments to the inner you, can make the outer you look so much better! February’s Inside Out Beauty installment is about incorporating daily affirmations into your life that highlight your inner and outer beauty. Positivity radiates even more than an expert bronzer application, so let your light shine through!
When you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, get into the habit of saying positive things about yourself that make you the person you are and how those things benefit you and those around you. This helps you feel beautiful because the way we feel about ourselves is the essential and most important step to being truly beautiful, both inside and out. Don’t just say your spoken affirmations once a day, say them as often as you like, preferably while looking into the mirror, so that you are looking at the person behind the words. Remember, speaking positivity makes it easier for positive things to come your way.
Some women like to have a vision board of great things that they have achieved or future goals that they hope to attain. This gives you both, things to be proud of and things to aspire to. There is also something called the “sticky note method” where you place sticky note(s) on your mirror with all of the positive things about yourself, your life and your goals. Many times when we write things down it helps us to remember them and actually absorb them so they become a part of our mindset. If the mirror isn’t your thing, you could also place the notes at your desk, on the dashboard of your car or on top of your daily planner. Additionally, each time you achieve one of your goals, replace it with another to continue growth. Don’t forget to reward yourself for tiny victories along the way.
Doing things to make yourself feel and look better is also an essential part of embracing your inner beauty that ultimately radiates on the outside. It could be something as simple as soaking in a luxuriating bubble bath at the end of the day, shopping for a new outfit or shoes to reward yourself for losing a few pounds, trying out a new hairstyle/makeup look, going for a walk/run or any exercise to maintain your health or de-stress after a long day at work or preparing or treating yourself to a meal. These things make you feel better and look better, but they work doubly well when combined with the spoken and visual affirmations.
Remember the key to feeling beautiful starts with you and how you feel inside!
~ Happy February!
