Body confidence can be tricky for some – our brains see the way we look very differently to how other people do. With that in mind, we at Fiona Clossick have created a list of five tips to help you to be more confident about your appearance:
1. Look After Yourself
2. Spend More Time Looking in the Mirror
3. Play to Your Strengths
If you’re proud of your toned arms, dress to show them off. If you love the look of your eyes, use make up that enhances them and makes them stand out even more. By highlighting your best features, you’re sure to receive plenty of compliments that will help to bolster your confidence.
4. Reframe Perceived Negatives in a more Positive Way
It may be that you’re overweight, which gives you less confidence. Reframe this by focusing on your beautiful curves, and how womanly they make you look. If you think your nose is too big, switch to telling yourself that you have a strong and powerful profile. Other people’s perceptions of how we look are based on how we project ourselves, so be nice to yourself.
5. Change the Way you Dress
Often, those of us who aren’t happy with our body shape will dress to hide any perceived flaws – which often has the opposite effect. Consider trying new styles, or maybe even using a personal shopper who will help you to see which styles best suit your shape. You may find that they pick out clothing you’d never have considered – and that you end up loving.
