When you look beautiful, you naturally feel more beautiful, too. Taking time out for self is not selfish; it’s absolutely essential.
Have you ever noticed what you feel inside is reflected on your face?
For example, when someone discreetly points out that you left the fly of your jeans open, you turn red with embarrassment, or when you watch a horror movie, all the blood drains from your face, and you start to look pale.
Similarly, when you feel good about yourself and embrace the way you look, it shows on your face.
Your skin starts to glow, your eyes look brighter, and there’s a pop of colour in your cheeks.
Life experts will tell you that you can put all the makeup you want, choose the best hairstyle, or wear designer clothes, but nothing matches the happiness that comes from within.
When you feel more beautiful, you naturally look more beautiful, as well.
However, we understand that “feeling beautiful” can be difficult.
On days that work does not go well or when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, feeling beautiful is the least of your concerns.
You spend the day cranky and annoyed and go back to bed after a long day feeling overwhelmed and exhausted with life.
But, doesn’t everyone feel exhausted from time-to-time?
The key is to understand that life will get hard, but self-care is as important as all your other activities.
Taking care of yourself and being selfish with an hour of your day is justified.
You might think that you don’t have the time to work on yourself, but the truth is that you need to take the time to do this.
Here are 5 quick ways you can feel more beautiful every single day.
How Practicing Kindness Can Make You Feel More Beautiful
Wait, what does kindness have to do with feeling beautiful?
Think back to the time you were having a bad day at work but did something kind for someone.
Remember the look on that person’s face?
You’d be lying if you said that their smile did not melt your heart instantly.
Regardless of how tired or stressed out you feel, doing something small, kind, and selfless for another person can lift some weight off your shoulders, brighten up your mood, and make you feel that however little a part you play in the universe, you have the ability to make someone smile.
How great does that feel?
Kindness doesn’t mean you have to break your back or empty your bank account for someone.
Your gesture can be as simple as giving up your seat on the bus, helping someone cross the road, or letting an elderly person cut in line if they are struggling.
Throughout the day, you’ll find a hundred opportunities to do something small and sweet for someone.
You just have to be a little more mindful.
