How to Be Happier in Your Own Skin

Be happy with your own skin

You can change many things about your life, but your skin isn’t one of them. This is why it’s good to learn to be happy in your own skin. The problem is, it is often a lot easier said than done. Here are a few ways you can learn to be happier just as you are.

Develop Positive Affirmations

Grab a stack of sticky notes and write down all the things you love about yourself. Go ahead – do it now. Come up with at least 10 and write one on each sticky. Now, go put those stickies in places you’ll see them. Your bathroom mirror, your wallet, your desk at work are all good places to start. Then every time you see a note, you will be reminded of what an amazing person you are and will self appreciation and be happier in your own skin.

Quit Scrolling Social Media

Social media creates unrealistic expectations of the human body. We’ve heard time and again in the news how it is affecting young people.  If you feel uncomfortable in your skin because of social media, it’s time to stop participating. Instead, find more body-positive media to engage in, such as books, music, and TV shows that make you feel great about who you are.

Work On Your Body Language

Believe it or not, your body language can play a huge part in feeling comfortable in your own skin. Every time you find yourself hunched over with your arms folded, notice how it makes you feel. Not very good, right? Exactly. It’s time to walk with your shoulders pulled back, and your head held high—you’ll be surprised by how much this small change affects your mood and be happier in your own skin.

Love The Clothes You Wear

If you are wearing clothes that don’t make you feel comfortable in your own skin, then it’s time to get clothes that do! Aim to find clothes that fit you, are flattering for your body, and are comfortable to wear (otherwise they’ll just hang in your closet getting dusty). When you’re shopping, don’t look at the sizes. Try on things that look like they will fit you and decide from there. The right clothes will certainly help you feel great about yourself. 

Being happier in your own skin is a lifelong journey that almost everyone on this earth must take. But you can make it easier on yourself by developing positive affirmations, quitting social media, working on your body language, and buying clothes that make you feel confident.  Just don’t forget that being positive about yourself and your body ultimately must come from within.
