Three Things to Stop Feeling Bad About for a Happier Life


via

Real talk; do you ever find yourself explaining your decision or feeling guilty when you haven’t done anything wrong or generally feeling bad? It’s not an ideal situation to feel as though you have the weight of the world on your shoulders and there are certain things we all need to let go of to live a happier life. Here are some examples. 


Your Appearance
When you look good on the outside it really does help you to feel good on the inside; & it’s not about being shallow or vain. It’s about building self-esteem, confidence and living in a way that’s authentic to you. When you feel good about your appearance you’re happy to be ‘you’; you’re not held back by insecurity or doubt. Don't be afraid to try out some new styles; treat yourself to some new clothes and makeup. Go to the salon and have your hair done, make a change to something you love. You don’t have to be glammed up to the nines every day but you want to know you can make yourself look nice when you choose to. No one looks like the women in beauty magazines (even the models themselves are heavily airbrushed) so stop comparing yourself to others, just be the best version of you. Embrace it. 

The Way You Spend Your Time
When it comes to our friends and family, most of us are always going to be there to help. If they need us for something, no matter how inconvenient; chances are, we’ll put them first as we know they’d do the same for us. However, there has to be limits. Sometimes even well meaning friends and family can take advantage of our good nature, and if you’re the sort of person that struggles saying no or putting yourself first then this can be an issue. It's okay to say no. Don’t be afraid to turn down plans or to generally prioritize yourself , especially if it’s going to impact your mental health. Your time is precious; help others but ensure there are limits and boundaries. If you have a hobby or something you like doing, don’t feel bad about it. Not everyone will understand your passion; as long as you’re still meeting all of your commitments then it’s no ones business how you spend your free time. 

Taking Time To Relax and Do Nothing
We spend so much time rushing around that sitting down and relaxing can feel like an unnecessary luxury. Having time to relax and do nothing is actually good for you. Relaxation is key to your mental health and what better way to relax than to pamper yourself- soak in a hot bath, paint your nails, do a face mask. Light some scented candles or pour some oils in your wax burner- click here to buy fragrance oils online. Don’t feel bad about taking some time each day (or whenever you can) for yourself. It doesn’t make you selfish, a bad parent or a bad person. We all need a little escape and a chance to clear our minds and relax, so grab the opportunity with both hands when it presents itself.

Hacks that will Spice Up Your Dated Wardrobe


via


With the fall season upon us, it is the perfect time to update your wardrobe for the new season. You don’t have to break the bank to look good either. Here are a few quick and simple tips and tactics that will spring your wardrobe back to life.


Check the Fit
You need to examine every single piece of clothing that you have, even your bathing suits and underwear. When you have done this, you then need to make sure that it fits properly. If you have clothing items that just don’t seem to be working, then now is the time for you to get rid of it. I realized after many years of cleaning out my closet; that I always feel better about adding new things when I have given the old, out of date pieces away. However, I totally understand there are those certain pieces you just can’t give up. But what I they don’t fit anymore? Well then you can have those pieces tailored. Cleaning out your closet and going over the fit and style of clothing is a fantastic way for you to downsize your wardrobe so that you can invest in new, quality pieces.

Stay Organized
Now lets pull everything out of your closet and organize your clothing. It really helps to visualize everything that you actually have. When you do, there’s a high chance you will find endless outfits that you have forgotten about entirely. Some advice that helps when organizing your closet is to keep seasonal items together. For example, keep all sweaters together, not mixed in with tank tops. This will make finding clothes way easier and it will also help you to stop taking hours to get dressed in the morning.  Once you have everything organized how you like it you can start putting together outfits and take your wardrobe to the next level.

Get Crafty
One way for you to inject life back into your old wardrobe and save money would be for you to take a pair of scissors and cut a larger opening at the top of the t-shirt. This will show off much more shoulder and it will also make it easier for you to get that vintage look. You might also want to get a needle and create a fun button-down shirt. This will help you to create something that is totally unique too, and it will also make it much easier for you to reuse your older items. Not into crafting your own clothes? No worries, with the fall season upon us the stores are buzzing with new merchandise. PLUS you might even be able to pick up some discounts by shopping for Black Friday deals too, so keep an eye out for those.

It’s All About the Accessories
One of my favorite and easiest ways to spice up your wardrobe is to add accessories. So you don’t break the bank invest in cheaper necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Once you do, you will see how simple you can jazz up any outfit and that you can also do it on a budget. If you have an old bag, why not add some badges, patches or even strips of material? This will transform it into something completely new and it will also give you the chance to cater it to the outfit you are wearing, and you may even find that you are able to mix and match too.

Colors
I love colors. My closet is organized by color. One of the reasons I organize by color is so it's easy for me when putting together outfits. Black is one of my favorite colors to wear, but if you have different colored tops, then why not mix and match them with jeans, or even suit pants? It's okay to take a risk and have fun. 

Sometimes you just need to stop wearing the same outfit all the time because you will find that your outfit becomes stale and you get in a clothing rut. Don't let that happen to you. Be bold, be daring and have a single-person fashion show in front of the mirror. You’ll thank yourself for it.
