The most important thing a girl can wear is her confidence. Whoever said this was absolutely right, too. Confidence transcends everything when it comes to looking good and feeling amazing. There is just one giant gaping void of an issue when it comes to wearing your confidence, and that is finding it.
Self-confidence is not something that is easy to just turn on. It isn’t a lightbulb. That’s why it is so important that you work on building your self-esteem, especially in this day and age where we spend a huge chunk of our every day on social media, comparing our behind the scenes footage to other people’s highlight reels.
That is why we have come up with a list of actions you can take to find that inner confidence you so desperately want to flaunt. Not all of them will work, but a lot of them will. Enjoy.
Grooming Is The Greatest
Don’t underestimate the power a long shower can have on how you feel. It may sound obvious, but leaving a shower with exfoliated skin and shaved legs will improve your self-image and, well, that has a knock-on effect that will send your self-confidence spiralling to new heights.
Dress To Impress
It is important that the person you are dressing to impress you be you and no one else but you. This is your self-confidence we are talking about, so dress in a way that makes you feel good about yourself. It could mean changing your style, becoming a bit more daring in how you dress this summer, or upgrading your casual wardrobe to nicer looking clothes. It is subjective, there is no right or wrong, all that matters is if you smile in the mirror.
Nothing Is Shallow
When improving your self-confidence, you need to make a decision that is right for you. It doesn’t matter what others say, or whether society believes something is shallow. If it will help your confidence then look into it. There is nothing wrong with getting a spray tan to feel a little more beautiful, there is nothing wrong with looking at the price for buttock augmentation, or for getting a bit of lip filler, or botox, or anything like that. Confidence is the key to achieving your dreams, so do what is necessary.
Be Kind, Be Generous
You know how karma works; you do something a little naughty and it comes back to bite you. Well, it works the other way around too. Helping others, no matter how big or how small, has a huge impact on your own self-image, self-worth and self-confidence. It doesn’t matter if it is corny, most of the corniest things are the truest. Being awesome to others is a great way to feel awesome about yourself.
Exercise Is Queen
Everyone puts this on their list of how to feel great because it works. Exercise releases endorphins and endorphins make you feel great. Not only that, but you feel proactive, you are getting up and out to try and boost your self-confidence, and that has a huge effect. It is empowering. Whether it is just to clear your mind, tone your body or slim your waist, it all affects your self-worth.
