There comes a time in any of our lives where we don’t feel our best. The beginning of the years sees us fresh with motivation, but now, as we head into spring, most women can start to feel a little down and out. Maybe you are desperate for brighter days filled with sunshine, maybe you have lapsed when it comes to a diet or fitness regime? There might be many different reasons for you not feeling your best which can include daily stress at home or in the workplace or even financial worries. However, what these feelings tend to do is effect how we feel about ourselves. I wanted to share with you my insights on how you can start to feel good on the inside out. I hope some of the suggestions help you.
Have you ever felt bloated and sluggish? Like you have eaten a big meal or you ate too much? Maybe you don’t feel like you have the energy levels that you would like. Finding yourself getting out of breath just by walking up the stairs. We have all been there. That sluggish feeling can stem from many different areas of our lives. One of the obvious things to investigate would be your diet. Are you eating the right things? Would you like to lose weight? Of course, some people think of ways to lose weight such as weight loss surgery or trying out some extreme diet. However, often just looking at your diet and making things a little more balanced might be just what the doctor ordered. Whether you need to take extreme action or small changes to your habits, tackling that sluggish feeling for good could increase your energy levels, help you to sleep better, and also boost your confidence.
Have you got a negative mindset?
Your mind is such a powerful tool, and many of us can really take it for granted. Negativity can be something that breeds in your mind, especially if things aren’t going your way. It can be quite difficult to overcome those thoughts where you feel sad or disheartened. However, trying to turn those negative thoughts into something more positive will definitely do more good than harm to your mindset and general wellbeing. It may feel like hard work at first, or certainly something that feels forced. But like anything habits need to be broken and habits need to be created. It can take time. Your mindset can also be worked on through meditation and exercise like yoga. Generally exercise is also hailed as a real svaious for mental health, so perhaps reigniting your love for exercise, going out for a walk or a run, could be just the thing you need to start feeling good again.
What really bugs you when it comes to confidence?
Finally, there will always be something that is causing you to lack some confidence. Maybe it is issues with how you look, for example, having breakouts of acne or skin problems. Maybe it’s a mental thing, where you don’t feel good enough in your job or at home. Try and take some time to work out what is causing you to feel a sudden lack of confidence and then figure out what could help. Your skin could be improved by drinking more water, trying a new product or cutting certain foods out of your diet. Your work issues could be resolved by communicating with your line manager, or getting some good feedback for a project. Don’t be afraid of it, use it to do good and feel better.
I hope that these suggestions help you if you are feeling a little low.
