If you feel good, you will always perform at your best. Here are 4 tips that will help you feel good AND look good!
1) Stay positive and motivated every day!
Read positive books and listen to CD’s or podcasts to keep you in a positive frame of mind and ready to deal with life’s challenges. I purchased Tony Robbins’ Ultimate Edge CD’s and listen to them daily on my phone. After a 15-minute segment, I feel so empowered and happy. I also plan to attend Les Brown’s Live Your Dream motivation seminar on January 28, 2017 in Oakland, CA. I constantly find ways to stay motivated and inspired. I also read my Daily Word every morning and it helps with my spiritual growth.
Invest in yourself to keep on track with your goals and you will feel better. Having a grateful heart is another way. Everyday write down at least one thing you are grateful for. Living in gratitude will make your heart happy. By adding a few of these activities into your daily schedule, you will feel happier.
2) Have more “FUN”!
Funny how I’m starting to hear more and more people say they want to have more fun now. “FUN” has always been one of my values and a “must have” for landing the right job. I had to make sure I was having fun in whatever position I had so that I would truly love what I do each and every day.
If you want to have more fun, try taking a vacation, attending a music festival, taking dance lessons, going to a comedy show, inviting friends over for cards, or just plain laughing more.
When I read in Dr. Christine Northrup’s book Goddesses Never Age, that fun is important and what keeps you ageless, I almost fell off my chair! It’s great to know that I’ve made sure to have fun in my life for a long time. Try having more fun this year.
3) Want a new look?
Would you like a new look for this year? Thinking about a new hair color or style? Perhaps you would like to change or update your style and find out what colors you should wear that complement your complexion. Wearing the right colors will give your skin an instant glow as well as wearing clothing that complements your body shape will make your figure look better. Brow shaping is another way to update a face. Do this and you will see how your face opens up and you will start receiving all kinds of compliments.
4) Move more and be good to your body!
There are lots of benefits to exercising, including sleeping better, preventing disease and thinking clearer; and it definitely makes your mind and body feel better. Exercising can include yoga, cardio, Zumba, meditating or whatever gets your body moving. Remember, the mind is important too, it keeps the body going.
If you are interested in Yoga, try Wanderlust.com. Currently, there is a free 21-day program you can join.
In Dr. Northrup’s book, she also explains how exercising sets off a chain reaction of feel-good chemicals in the body. One of the chemicals is called nitric oxide (not to be confused with nitrous oxide, used in dentistry). This molecule or gas is triggered by laughter, exercising, eating fruits and vegetables, and experiencing pleasure. You will have more energy and a sense of relaxation.
