How do beauty and confidence go hand-in-hand?
As a woman, nine times out of ten, when you feel good, you look and it’s important to celebrate that feeling.
Life can be full of hectic situations, and sometimes we need to simply stop and slow down, and celebrate just how confident, beautiful, and resilient we are as women.
Here are five ways you can celebrate beauty and confidence (because you know you deserve it) presented by Sally Beauty.
In the day and age we live in, setting boundaries is an absolute must. Setting boundaries with the daily things you consume, whether it’s through social media or face-to-face interactions is important. You have to monitor what you allow into your space because it can truly have an effect on your confidence. As a woman, you have control over what you decide to entertain and what has power in your life, so it’s important to make sure you’re only allowing in positive energy and setting boundaries when things aren’t so positive. Anytime a negative thought, person or interaction comes into your life, you have the right to decide whether or not you want it to stay. The choice is yours, so make it count!
In a media-driven world that is constantly showing us the ins and outs of celebrities and influencers lives, it can sometimes be hard to stay true to you. You’re constantly being exposed to glamorous lifestyles and you wonder just how they do it. This can be extremely toxic to your confidence and can instantly cause you to compare yourself to others. To avoid this, try not to engage in things that make you feel less than yourself or unlike yourself. Focus on being your absolute best self, and engage in the things that make you feel confident and beautiful.
Don’t Lose Touch with Reality
We are constantly being exposed to images of airbrushed and perfected women that seem to be impossibly beautiful. Beauty that is neither attainable or even real. Don’t allow insecurities to creep into your mind and cause you to want to look like these unreal images. Keep in mind that these unrealistic images have either been Photoshopped, or have been perfected with lots of makeup. Learning how to love your true and authentic self in its most natural form truly exonerates beauty and confidence.
Don’t be Judgmental
Being judgmental is such a negative and ugly thing to do. Whether we’re judging ourselves or judging others, it’s just something that shouldn’t be done. Being a judgmental person doesn’t allow your beauty and confidence to radiate, it instead dims both of those lights, and causes you to not only lack confidence, but also portray ugliness. Instead, being observant but non-judgmental is the perfect way to celebrate your confidence and beauty.
Embrace the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
It’s an absolute must. There will be days that are absolutely phenomenal, and then there will be days that you wish never occurred, but those good, bad, and ugly days is what makes us human. Being able to embrace the good, bad, and ugly times gives you a reason to celebrate confidence and beauty. It allows you to appreciate the good even more, and reminds you that the bad and ugly days don’t last forever.
Life can get crazy at times, but sometimes you have to truly stop and smell the roses. Embrace your surroundings and take it all in. Be grateful for where you are in this moment and learn how to celebrate your beauty and confidence. It matters!
