Many of us struggle with our body confidence every now and again. I know I struggled, especially after having my twins. And I still struggle sometimes. It is hard for us women not to worry about our looks in this very vain world. We worry about our body weight, hair, the size of our boobs, butt, nose, lips, you name it, I bet someone out there worries about it.
Over the years I have become more body confident, and I am glad to say I have reached a point where I love EVERYTHING about myself. Me getting to this point of total body acceptance took me decades to get to. It is a continuous process, and everyone can achieve this too. It is all in the mind.
Here are some tips that helped me build my body confidence:
Embrace your Flaws
The first step for me accepting and loving myself and my body was to embrace my flaws. I took a good look at myself naked and I embraced every part of my life and my body, and never looked back. It takes a certain level of courage to do this, but I did it and when I looked at myself, my flaws didn’t look like flaws anymore, they looked like ME. Once you embrace your flaws, they stop being flaws.
Know your Body
I know every nook and cranny of my body. I love walking around the house with no clothes on, whenever I get the chance to, I find it so liberating and empowering, don’t ask, lol. And I think that is why I know my body so well. You become more confident when you are in tune with your body.
I love dressing up as you can tell already. Dressing up and looking good can build your body confidence. I know for a fact it helped build mine. Show me a woman who is well dressed and has no body confidence, because I am yet to spot one.
Upgrade your Lingerie
Getting rid of the old and torn bras, and granny pants, and going for some sexy underwear can make you feel so good. You don’t have to have a partner to look good underneath the clothes. You can go all out, and splash on some good underwear just for you. I do this regularly and I know it definitely helps me feel good about myself. And good underwear helps your clothes look good on youtoo.
Getting your hair done, going for a spa day, or just treating yourself anyway you like will improve your mood, and the way you see yourself. A good hairstyle can change your look for the better, and a good massage can improve your mood massively. Pampering yourself regularly helps build your body confidence because you have to love yourself to pamper yourself. I try to make some time out just for me and pamper myself stupid.
Change What you Can’t Live With
Now this tip may be controversial but I believe if you hate something so much and you can’t embrace it (first tip), change it if you can. So for example, if you can’t embrace your weight or your teeth, do something about it. I didn’t like the hairs on my chin, and I did something about it.
How do you work on building your body confidence?
