Changing the Way You Look
Changes How You Feel

the way you look

By Mikkie Mills

Many people go through their days lacking the self-confidence they need to feel good. What they don't realize is that making a few changes can actually make them feel better about themselves, boost their confidence, and give them a more positive outlook on life. The changes don't have to be major. By simply fixing one or two things that you are not happy with, you can have the self-confidence that you've always wanted.

Change The Way You Dress
Ask yourself when the last time was that you went out and bought yourself some stylish new clothes. If you can't remember the last time you were at the mall, it may be time to treat yourself to a new wardrobe. Browse through some magazines and ask for the opinions of salespeople while you are shopping to figure out what styles and colors work best for you. Getting dressed every day will be fun, and you'll be excited to show off all of the new outfits you bought. You'll feel better, and an occasional compliment can’t hurt your self-confidence.

Get A New Hairstyle
Has it been awhile since you changed the way you wear your hair? If so, a trip to the salon may be in order. Consider a fresh new cut or color. If your hair is thinning, you may even want to consider stem cell hair regrowth>. If this is the case, schedule a consultation with a doctor who specializes in the process. They can advise you on exactly how the procedure works, and tell you what to expect. Losing hair doesn’t have to be a hopeless, uncontrollable hereditary curse.

Join The Gym
If you are out of shape or carrying a few extra pounds, it could be hurting your self-confidence. Take some time each week to get in an effective workout. The exercise, the positive body changes that you will experience, as well as chemicals the body releases during exercise will have you feeling wonderful.

Does Changing The Way You Look Help Your Self-Confidence?
It is true that when you look good, you feel good. You have a higher level of self-confidence, and it becomes visible to others. It is important to not be too critical of yourself. It is highly doubtful that you need a full head to toe makeover in order to improve your self-confidence. Doing one or two things to update your look will make you feel better about yourself, and it will help you see yourself in a positive new light.

By making some small changes, you can boost your mood and your mental health. Perhaps you want to make some positive changes in order to make yourself feel better, but you don't know where to start. These steps are just suggestions, but have been proven to help most. Enlist the help of a friend to give you honest advice if you are having a hard time deciding, even if it hurts a bit. That friend can even join in some of these steps with you. Either way, if you want to feel better, something has to change. It’s completely up to you.
