Body Confidence

Suffer from low self-esteem? Don’t feel comfortable in your own skin?

No worries. Many people share your dilemma. And fortunately, that’s a solvable problem.

You just need some lifestyle changes to fix your self-perception. From there, everything will fall into place.

And today, we’ll show you those changes. We’ve got 4 habits you can adopt to improve confidence in your looks.

Put them into action, and enjoy the results!

#1 – Fix Your Posture.

Posture matters for self-confidence. The way you stand and express yourself can rewire your self-perception.

You should get yourself used to an upright posture – with shoulders wide and eyes staring forward!

But Isn’t That Exhausting?

It can be, but you don’t have to maintain it all the time.

It’s a posture you should get into, specifically for stuff you do in a social environment – whether it be work or a friendly gathering.

Tips to Apply.

Focus on fixing hunched shoulders and tightened hip flexors. Those ted to be the two biggest mishaps in your posture.

Tight flexors tilt your hips forward, giving you a “bigger stomach.” And hunched shoulders give you a stooped look.

Fixing those should fix most of your posture issues!

#2 – Shave Off Excess Weight.

You don’t have to be a “super slim model” for good self-esteem. Getting down to an average weight range is enough.

The important part here is – you don’t want to feel like your body is radically different from the norm.

You don’t want to be obese or overweight. But at the same time, your negative looks shouldn’t make you anemic.

Those extremes are unhealthy – both mentally and physically.

What to Do.

Stabilize your diet. Don’t eat junk. But at the same time, don’t deprive yourself too much.

Find a good eating schedule, and eat to be full. But at the same time, don’t indulge for emotional compensation.

To compensate emotional eating, you can always find a healthy outlet – like a hobby you deeply enjoy!

#3 – Keep a Good Public “Image.”

And no, we’re not talking about reputation. Instead, we’re talking about how you physically look in public.

Try not to look disheveled. Take care of your looks, whether it be keeping your hair straight, or staying shaved.

Obviously – to do that, you need to find a look that best fits “who you are”?

What Does That Mean?

Different people look better in different aesthetics.

Some look best in certain clothing colors, mainly due to their hair and skin complexions. And the same applies to hairstyle, etc.

You’ve got to find what suits you best. And the best way to do so is by seeking expert help!

Any Suggestions?

You can try researching celebrities. Ask yourself – what celebrity do I look like?

Study their looks, and find out how they’ve stunned in the past. Check to see if those celebrities have similar physical advantages (or issues to yours).

From there, construct a look that suits your special features!

#4 – Read Up on Health and Fitness.

Here, we recommend research less – and stunning stories more.

Look up motivational stories. Look at “before” and “after” pictures of people, and see how they stayed in shape.

Look at how they fixed their issues, whether that be obesity – or aging looks!

Use them as inspiration. Look for their stories as fuel to keep you committed on a journey for a better image!

Final Word.

The previous fixes are all physical. And the reason is, there’s no mind hack to feeling better about yourself. It takes time and effort. But with enough commitment and patience, you can maintain good looks long-term!
