Keep your Chin Up

No matter where you are on your journey to a more confident, younger-looking you, it’s easy to get discouraged by daily challenges or setbacks. According to a study published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry,¬†a great way to stay positive is to keep your chin up… literally. Research shows that the brain associates postures with emotions, so slumping can actually lead to discontentment¬†while sitting up straight or walking tall amps up your attitude. It’s a proven confidence booster!

Give your mood and your self-image a boost with these easy, natural pick-me-ups:

  • Make a big decision and stick to it. Being decisive can make you feel stronger and more capable.
  • Smile to lift your spirits. Studies show that the act of smiling can actually slow heart rate and decrease perceived levels of stress.
  • Accept compliments readily.
  • Walk with confidence and make eye contact.
  • Great skincare can help improve your self-image. Clear an acne-prone complexion and create firmer-looking, smoother skin.
  • Take a walk or hit the gym for an instant mood booster.
  • Focus on the positive. Write down tasks accomplished or things you’ve mastered.
  • Avoid comparing yourself to others and feeling jealous. If you catch your mood plunging after being on social media, remember to step back and give your emotions a reality check. Most people only share their happiest, proudest moments publicly, even though they may be facing private challenges.
  • Stop procrastinating. Decide Today How Tomorrow Looks
