Feeling Confident In Your Skin
At Yoli, our mission is to transform lives physically, emotionally, and financially. Many people focus solely on their physical transformation, but as important as your physical health is, your emotional transformation is just as important. Today, we’re going to talk about feeling confident in your own skin!
Why Confidence Matters Now
The most important thing to understand about building self-confidence is that you should start right now. A lot of people think that once they’ve reached their goal weight, that’s when they’ll start feeling good about themselves. But the time to work on feeling comfortable in your own skin is right now. Not when you reach your goal weight. Not when you can run a 5K. Right now.
Why now? Because your emotional health matters! When we talk about transforming your life, we’re not just talking about the number on the scale. We want you to feel good about yourself every step of the way. You don’t need to wait until you reach your goals to start!
Of course, it’s important to remember that being confident doesn’t mean giving up on setting goals. It doesn’t mean you’ll look in the mirror every morning and be 100% satisfied with your appearance. It doesn’t mean you won’t push yourself to improve your life. It simply means that when you set goals, you set them with positivity and the knowledge that you’re capable of accomplishing them.
The Importance of Positive Thinking
So how do you start building confidence? It all starts with your thinking. The way you think about yourself makes a big difference in the way you feel about yourself. If you’re constantly coming down on yourself for what you perceive as your flaws, that’s going to have a negative impact on your emotional health. On the other hand, if you use positivity to fuel your efforts, your emotional health will be strengthened.
Positivity doesn’t mean blinding yourself to the reality of your situation, but rather acknowledging where you are, assessing your goals, and then committing to reach them without beating yourself up. There’s no need to shame yourself when you’re working hard to improve.
When you start to struggle with negativity, think of all of the healthy decisions you’re making. Think of the healthy meals you’re eating, the regular exercise habit you’re honing, and the consistent sleep you’re getting each night. Think of the commitment you’re making to your health. No matter where you are on your journey to optimal health, those are things to be celebrated.
Finally, it’s important to avoid comparing yourself to other people. It’s easy to look at someone else and wonder why your transformation doesn’t look like theirs. It can be frustrating to see someone else reach their goals while you’re still working so hard on your own. But when you see someone who has had an awesome transformation, remind yourself that it’s the result of their own hard work. Use their transformation as inspiration rather than letting it make you feel bad about yourself. And above all, stay focused on your own journey and take pride in your accomplishments!
Your emotional transformation is just as important as your physical transformation, so we hope this guide will help you feel confident in your own skin. For more tips to feel your best, subscribe to the blog and check out our Facebook page!
