Ever have days where you feel like everyone else knows the secret to feeling sexy and confident and you don't? You're not alone! The truth is, there is no magic formula, and no one has it all figured out, but there are things you can do to help you feel more bold, comfortable, empowered and in love with yourself.
Feeling sexy and confident starts with self-recognition and feeling admiration and love for yourself. Sure, what you wear is a contributing factor. In fact, anything external, from people and places to things, can boost your sense of confidence, but at the core, it’s all about you valuing yourself.
To feel sexy and confident, you need to start by acknowledging and appreciating yourself, whether that means making it a daily practice to be more self-aware and present or checking in weekly for a reminder of everything you love about yourself.
The key is to be grateful for yourself. Be your own definition of sexy, not what the media tells you!
WONDERING HOW TO FEEL SEXY? TRY THESE THREE TIPS!
Stop comparing yourself to others
You’ve probably heard it before, but that’s because it’s wise and true! Do not compare yourself to anyone else, or your life to society’s standards and timelines. Ever! Don’t do it.
Remember. You can admire someone else’s physical appearance or character without doubting your own. You can applaud people for reaching goals that you also aspire to reach one day without putting yourself down. It’s SO important to remember that the entire world’s population cannot be on the same timeline. There is room for everyone to shine at the same time, in their own way.
The confidence that comes with this realisation adds a whole new meaning to sexy.
Celebrate the big and small wins
To tap into your own confidence, you have to stop being so hard on yourself. Instead, applaud yourself from time to time. Celebrate the small wins and the big ones. Whether it’s a promotion at work or the fact that you cleaned your room (we know the struggle), be your own biggest cheerleader!
It’s incredibly sexy to empower yourself and others. Instead of negative self-talk, make it your prerogative to lift yourself up and to bring everyone else with you. Giving yourself permission to love yourself will inspire those around you, even if you can’t see it, and celebrating life’s big and small wins gives you the confidence to be patient when the wins are hard to see.
Become your own coach
Stay learning and unlearning, and coach yourself through the ups and downs. Anyone that believes they’ve learnt everything there is to learn, needs to take a step back and reflect.
There is power in unlearning things that don’t serve you and even more so in learning the things that do. Making space for new knowledge will make you feel more confident than you’ve ever felt. Applying that knowledge will make you feel sexy and empowered.
There you have it, ladies, that’s how to feel sexy and confident, it starts and ends with how you feel about yourself, it won’t happen overnight – it’ll take time, but you’re worth the hard work!
