Feeling good in your skin is essential to feeling confident, but it doesn’t happen automatically. It takes effort and maybe some pampering in the form of personalised pyjamas that make you goofy for self-love. Luckily, there are small things you can do daily to help you get there. And here are some personal favourites listed for you:
Get Enough Sleep
The quality of your sleep is vital to your mental and physical health. A lack of sleep can make you feel like you’re dragging, but it can also cause more severe problems, like digestive issues and depression. And if you’re having trouble getting enough shut-eye, try these tips:
- Get plenty of exercise during the day. It’s important to be physically active throughout the day so your body is ready to sleep at night. This could mean taking a walk around town or doing some yoga poses before bedtime. You don’t have to go all out—just do enough activity so that when nighttime rolls around, there’s no need for any more burning calories until morning.
- Get into healthy bedtime routines as soon as possible after waking up (but not right away). This means avoiding caffeine after lunchtime and sticking with water instead, like putting on some relaxing music while preparing for sleep, brushing teeth without rushing etc., until finally climbing into bed with another favourite book under one arm or just a space where thoughts might wander freely without consequences until falling asleep becomes inevitable.
Drink Plenty of Water
When you’re feeling good in your skin, chances are that you’ll start to look better too.
So, drink about eight glasses of water a day. (A glass is about the size of the palm of your hand.) That’s about 2 litres (1/2 gallon) or more if you’re active or sweating a lot. And if it helps track, keep a glass nearby and take small sips throughout the day as often as possible.
Wear Breathable Fabrics
There are a few ways to ensure you wear fabrics that feel good and breathe well, and they are:
- For winter, wool is your best bet.
- For summer, look for cotton or linen clothes (the latter being more expensive).
- Polyester can be a good choice for spring and autumn weather because it’s very durable. Plus, if you need waterproofing, polyester will do the trick.
But how can you make those clothes feel amazing?
- You can wear things that make you happy. Meanwhile, you may love your skinny jeans, but if they don’t fit well and aren’t flattering on your body, it’s better to wear something else, such as personalised pyjamas.
- You must choose clothes that fit. It doesn’t matter how much money was spent on a garment; if it doesn’t fit right or makes you look awkward, don’t wear it!
- Choose appropriate clothes for the occasion (even if they’re not what everyone else is wearing). Your favourite dress might be too short at school or work. If so, you must opt for something more conservative instead of feeling self-conscious all day long because people look at your butt in those super cute mini-shorts.
Watch Your Posture
Posture is the key to feeling good in your skin. The way you carry yourself speaks volumes about who you are and how confident you feel in the world. So, make sure to always stand up straight, sit up straight, and don’t slouch!
Relax and De-Stress
Meditation is the practice of focusing your attention on something specific. It can be as simple as taking a few minutes to sit quietly and breathe each day deeply. Mindfulness involves being aware of what you’re doing with no judgment—for example, being mindful when you eat means noticing how food tastes or feels in your mouth without judging if the taste is good or bad (you might even find yourself enjoying foods more).
Remember that it’s all about small changes and finding out what works best for you. So, don’t be afraid to try something new because there is no one right way of doing things!
