The answer to this seemingly complex question really is quite simple. And believe it or not, the reason has nothing to do with what’s pounded into our heads every day by the media. For example…
Looking good and feeling good isn’t going to lead us into the waiting arms of an ultra-rich, incredibly handsome, honest and caring, polite and well-mannered man who just happens to be available AND interested.
Looking good and feeling good isn’t going to guarantee that our social lives will suddenly be as jam-packed and exciting as all those celebrities whose looks we try so desperately to emulate.
And no, looking good and feeling good won’t turn us into highly sought-after starlets either. (Although it MIGHT help us get chosen for the newest reality television show.)
Ladies – No matter what you see on television, or hear on the radio or in the salon, or read in newspapers and magazines, the reasons given above are NOT the reasons why you should look good and feel good. It’s time you refocus. Now pay attention and I’ll give you the answer. Ready for the big reveal? Here is it.
The reason why a lady needs to look good and feel good is so that her life can be more gratifying. Hold on now. This isn’t as shallow as it sounds. And it doesn’t conflict with what I said above either. When you look good and you feel good you know it and others know it too. And if you still don’t believe or understand what I mean, then think about this.
Think back to the last time you were in a room full of females. Do you remember secretly (or along with your girlfriends) giving each person the 30-second analysis based solely on appearance? Don’t shake your head and get all righteous; you know you did.
As you scanned the room, you could tell in a moment the women who looked good and felt good. Their eyes seemed to sparkle, their steps seemed a bit lighter, their words flowed a bit more freely, and their overall appearance showed a keen attention to detail.
The women who didn’t look good or feel good were just the opposite. The statements they made were full of negative undertones, they had forgotten what their mothers told them about proper posture, they needed someone to tell them NOT to go out looking like that, and they were turning others away faster than they were attracting them.
Which group sounds more like you?
Looking good and feeling good. You almost cannot do one without doing the other. When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you cannot help but look good.
How does a lady look good and feel good? It isn’t hard and in fact, looking good and feeling good has never been easier! It doesn’t matter whether you have a lot of time or just a little, or a lot of money or just a little. Once you make looking good and feeling good your number one goal, you’ll be surprised at how many different ways there are to accomplish this goal.
You can start working towards your goal right now just by adopting good eating habits. Try loading up on the foods that keep your energy levels constant rather than eating the foods that temporarily spike your energy but then leave you feeling tired and lethargic. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and nuts are all excellent foods to work into your diet. You might miss the junk food at first, but give your body a chance and watch it thrive.
Once you’ve recovered from the dietary switch, try working in a little exercise. Thirty minutes of moderate exercise 4 – 5 times a week will go far towards helping you look good and feel good. It might be hard at first to give up your couch for a pair of jogging shoes, but after a few weeks, you’ll find that you actually look forward to this time of day.
Exercise has so many benefits. It’ll help tone your body so even if you don’t lose weight, you’ll look better and your clothes will fit better. Exercise also is a great way to reduce stress. If you’re stressed or you know others who are, you know how much older stress can make you look. Exercise improves your circulation, and that’s vital if you want your blood to transport the vitamins and nutrients needed to help you look good and feel good throughout your body. Improved circulation helps your skin look suppler and your hair look shinier, too!
Changing your diet and incorporating exercise will go far towards helping you look good and feel good. But wait, it doesn’t end there! Remember to enjoy yourself too!
