Ways to feel beautiful, without really trying

Boost your self-esteem without spending a dime

1. Smile

Even if you don’t feel like it, try smiling. People are attracted to happiness, and it makes you look younger and more refreshed than scowling.

2. Get Enough Sleep

3. Listen to Your Favorite Music

Music has been shown to reduce stress and help you relax. Besides, it’s hard to feel bad about yourself when you’re rocking out to your favorite tunes. So go ahead, belt out that ballad in front of the mirror like no one’s watching.

 

4. Stand up Straight

Good posture makes everyone look taller, slimmer and more confident. Proper body alignment reduces fatigue and makes it easier to breathe. And feeling better is always a boost to your self image.

 

5. Do Something Physical

Mow the grass, wash the car, or clean out that closet you’ve been avoiding. Not only will you get a little exercise, you’ll be able to see the fruits of your labor, and admiring your accomplishments is a great way to feel beautiful and powerful.

 

6. Hang out With Your Pets

A dog always thinks you’re beautiful no matter what, and a pet’s enthusiasm is contagious.

Feeling beautiful is about more than what we see in the mirror. A shift in attitude can go much farther than a trip to the cosmetics counter, plus it’s a lot less expensive!
