“I’m going to sound really pretentious saying this, but I’ve been practicing this since the end of last year and it has changed my life. On days where I don’t feel 100 percent, I’ll light candles in my room and turn on one of those “guided meditation” playlists on Spotify.
It really helps to take the time off to just be present. Give thanks to your body and yourself for working so hard. Take a moment to reflect on all the opportunities and blessings you’ve been receiving. After every meditation session, I always feel like I can slay the day and no bad energy can get in my way.”
2. Dress in a way that makes you feel good
“Don’t feel pressured to follow trends, because when you’re unsure if something is working on you, it won’t make you feel as good about yourself. It’s also very important to know your body type. Do your research and learn what best compliments your body. It also helps that you don’t compromise comfort for style! You’ll find that you’ll feel much more confident about yourself and your body when you are dressed comfortably.
And if you’re unsure about an outfit? Ask your close friends, especially those who are brutally honest! And if you have the opportunity, attend styling talks and maybe speak to professionals.”
3. Practise self-love
“If you feel bad about yourself all the time, the only person who is at a loss is you. So remember to love yourself. You are in charge of your own happiness and all the feelings you’re feeling.”
4. Don’t be afraid to smile
“Smile as much as you can. Smile to your colleagues, the strangers you see on the train (don’t care if they don’t smile back at you!), to the coffeeshop auntie and the people around you. Trust me, you’ll feel so good and confident in yourself when someone smiles back. And it will happen!”
