How to Be You
(How to Be More Authentic/ How to Be Yourself)
Before doing anything or going anywhere, visualize exactly who you are. It is important to look at your positive qualities and focus on those. Don’t visualize who you want to be if it’s not who you actually are. Being yourself is all about being exactly who you are as you are. Take a few minutes each morning to visualize all the great things about you. You can also visualize things you want to accomplish for the day. It’s perfectly fine to also visualize positive outcomes in situations you may face throughout your day and how you will handle things if things don’t go according to your plan.
It can be really difficult to find acceptance in our appearance. Self-care with respect to appearance can just about disappear when we are busy or under stress. Remember that caring for your appearance is reflection of the love you have for yourself. So be sure to brush and floss your teeth, get adequate sleep, eat nutrient dense foods and take the time you need for a simply but effective beauty routine that feels right to you.
3. Accentuate positive qualities
When you look in the mirror, it is easy to identify all the things that you don’t like about your appearance, but it’s important to take time to look in the mirror and find the things that are beautiful about you. Accentuate those qualities and let go of the rest. The same is true for your skills and personality!
4. Minimize stress
It is never fun to be around a stressed out person. Stress not only takes its toll on how you feel, but it takes a toll on your health as well. It can cause us to hide behind worry and fear and not reveal who we truly are. Overall, stress just makes you much less fun and alluring. Take some time to evaluate the stresses in your life. Get rid of the things that do not serve you. Formulate a plan for stress reduction and then do it!
Life is always going to have a certain level of stress, but so much of the stress we encounter is our own doing. Your best self can only shine through fully in the absence of unnecessary stress, so do what you can to minimize your stress level.
What is it about you that you love? What is it about you that others love. Evaluate who you are and what you contribute to the world. Figuring this out can boost how you feel about yourself and also steer you to do more of the things you love to do, making a greater contribution to the world!
The perfect wardrobe for you may not be the perfect wardrobe for someone else. The key is to wear the things you love to wear. This holds true even on relaxing days. It might be a favorite old sweatshirt or it might be comfy yoga pants. Whatever you wear, be sure it is what you like and what you are comfortable in. Then, rock your style.
- A good clean-out/purge of your closet can be a really great way to freshen things up for yourself.
- Decluttering in general will clear up the space allowing you to be more you!
