Sometimes women can be their own worst enemy when it comes to confidence, how they feel mentally and also working towards their dreams and goals. Scarily, it can be the opinion you have on yourself and your self-image that can often be the thing that you holds you back. No matter how confident you portray yourself to be, there will always be a body hangup or two that you just can’t get out of your head. It is so much more common than we
With many women struggling to overcome the opinion they have on themselves, it is startling how this can hold you back. With that in mind, here are some of the most common body hang-ups women can have and hopefully give you a few practical tips and advice on how to overcome it or make changes to help you feel better in your own skin. After all, if your confidence is at an all-time high, the sky’s the limit.
Your body shape
Every woman will have a different body shape, we are not all the same. Some women are tall, some women have an hourglass shape. Some will have great breasts and others might just have a booty to rival Beyonce. We all have different features, and instead of embracing what we do have, we can start to focus on what we don’t. The main thing to remember is that we are in control of our bodies and what we do, so if we wanted to look into a natural looking breast augmentation then we can do, if we wanted to take on intensive personal training sessions so that we can tone our bodies up than that is your prerogative to do so. The main point is that all body shapes are different, so focus on the qualities you love and enhance those features accordingly. Whether you device to make changes or not, the focus on the positives will help change the way you look at yourself moving forward.
The way your skin looks
Let’s face it, you may have gone through your teenage years heavily coated in spots, or was one of the ones that didn’t get a single pimple, but often many adults and women especially today can start out with things such as acne, and this can be highly damaging to your self confidence if you let it. Acen can often be triggered by different things. It could be that your diet isn’t what it should be, and where changes could be made such as drinking more water or changing the diet you have in terms of the food you eat. Often these small changes can make a big difference. But sometimes it is more than that. Perhaps your sin has gotten used to the products you use daily, and so a change in your skincare routine could be beneficial. By being proactive you can make the changes. The one thing to remember is that sometimes these fare ups could be an indication of other things in your life. Maybe you are stressed and anxious, or perhaps there is a hormone imbalance. Getting this checked out could help you cross off potential causes.
Your mindset is the key
Your mind is such a powerful tool, that you really need to ensure that you are aware of how much is can be part of how you think and feel. Much of what we criticise about ourselves in terms of our self-image stems from your mind and thoughts. It is about recognising those thoughts and ensuring that you don’t let them become your full story. Many people will have negative thoughts, and often you can’t help that. But the one thing you can do is question those thoughts. What evidence is there to suggest that what you think about is the reality? Is this how others see you? The chances are that is not the case. Once you start to rework the way you think, other things can start to change and improve. A positive mindset and outlook on life can make a huge difference to how you feel. It may seem forced at first, but like anything, habits need to be broken and new ones need to be formed. It can take days and weeks for new habits to develop, so don’t get disheartened at first.
Let’s hope highlighting some of these things will help you have a better relationship between what you think and the image you have of yourself.
